Giveaway #3 - Radical Fashion by Claire Wilcox

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.  THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!

I'm doing an entire week of giveaways here on the blog! If you follow the Couture Allure Facebook page, you know I've been downsizing my personal research library over the past couple of months.  Most of the vintage books are being offered for sale in my SewHallie Etsy shop, and more will be added this week.  However, there are several that I want to give away as gifts to my devoted followers here on the blog.  I know I neglected you last month, and I hope these gifts will make up for it!

The winner of yesterday's giveaway of "The Gospel According to Coco Chanel" is Kmisner!

Congratulations K!  I'll be in touch by email shortly to make arrangements for shipping your book!  And thank you to everyone who entered! 

Today's giveaway is the book "Radical Fashion" by Claire Wilcox.  This is a hardcover book with original dust jacket that was published in 2001 to accompany the exhibit of the same name at the V&A Museum in London.

The book includes detailed information about many modern designers who are considered "radicals" in their approach to fashion.  There are lots of pages of full color plates of the clothing featured in the exhibit on models and on the exhibit floor.

Included are clothes by Helmut Lang, Azzedine Alaia, Hussein Chalayan, Comme des Garcons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela, Issey Miyake, Junya Watanabe, Vivienne Westwood and Yohji Yamamoto.

It's a 148 page book in near mint condition.  I know you'll find it fascinating!

This giveaway will run for 24 hours only and the winner will be chosen at 7am Eastern Thursday, February 14, 2013.  I'm not going to make you jump through hoops either.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog.  If you don't have a blogger profile, please leave your email address in your comment.  I'll choose the winner via the random number generator tomorrow morning and will contact the winner via email for shipping information.  And stay tuned for another giveaway every day this week!

Important!  If you live in the US, I will ship this book to you via Media Mail at no cost.  Unfortunately, due to the recent postal rate increases, if you live outside of the US, I must ask that you pay for the shipping, which could run anywhere from $20.00 - $29.00 depending upon where you live.  If you live outside the US and are not willing to pay the shipping, please do not enter this giveaway!
