    This was so lovely The illustrations are absolutely fetching, and reading this was like peeping through a vintage window with sumptuous draperies, of course I don t recall reading any other designer s memoire that has revealed so much of his personal process, successes and failures Mr Hartnell must ve been quite a character I wonder if he was really so adorable, or if he may ve had an occasional catty streak In any case, he had an excellent understanding of the form and function of royal attire He understood the theatrical aspects, yet managed to make his costumes seriously stunning Now than ever, I want to nose through the VA s collection for a closer look at the embroideries and couturier details

    Norman Hartnell left Cambridge without a degree, intent on becoming a fashion designer With the financial assistance of his father, and the practical assistance of his sister, he established his own house, and ultimately became dressmaker to Queen Elizabeth II, among other royal and noble ladies.It s popular to sneer at Hartnell, to call his clothes dowdy and frumpish , but that s really wrong Much of his work, particularly his evening wear, could, to the contrary, be called over the top , with embellishments of jewels, fur and heavy embroidery Indeed, he is quoted as saying, For me, simplicity is the death of the soul While his daywear for the Queen has been deemed matronly , one must not forget that, when she was young, it was common for young, married women to dress in an older style And Hartnell also talks about the various constraints that exist when designing for royalty the use of pale colors to stand out in a sea of people wearing darker colors, a design that allows for the wearing of Orders, the need to set an example as with wartime restrictions As he puts it in describing the choice of colors for Queen Mary s visits to bombed sites, Black does not appear in the rainbow of hope In many ways, Hartnell put English fashion design on the map Most people would be hard pressed to name an English fashion designer before Hartnell There is, of course, Charles Worth, but he made his name in Paris After Hartnell, the names keep coming Mary Quant, Zandra Rhodes, Vivienne Westwood and so on.This memoir is a must for anyone interested in fashion history, whatever their opinions of Hartnell s designs.

    A quick read, decent look into early to mid 20th century British fashion, told in an engaging voice Hartnett is a bit too precious, hyperbolic, and namedroppy for me at times, but that s clearly just his personality coming through, and the book is presented as something between a respectable memoir and a chatty tell all The copy i read an original hardback printing loaned to me by a colleague had tons of beautiful full color reproductions of Hartnett s design renderings for various members of the royal family, and many excellent photographs as well Those alone make it well worth the read, for the opportunity to see his drawing style Whatever one might think of his dress designs themselves, the renderings prove his talent.
