Written by Richard Martin, Director of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The relationship between fashion and Surrealism began in Paris in the 1920s when Surrealist artists plundered fashion imagery for their art, raising fashion beyond the level of mere style to an important expression of culture.  

With 300 startling illustrations, this book reveals the extravagant and ingenious creations resulting from the collaboration between fashion and Surrealism. It ranges from the shocking Surrealist dresses of Schiaparelli and Dali to the work of contemporary fashion designers, including Vivienne Westwood and Marc Jacobs.
