Summary "The costume and decor of the Ballets Russes took Paris by storm in 1909 and fuelled a mania for the exotic, for vibrant patterns and rich, luxurious textiles. It only took the genius of designers like Paul Poiret and Natalia Goncharova to transform these into garments that were bold, inventive and quintessentially modern. Ballet, theatre and cinema all lent ideas to mainstream fashion, as did artists of the avant-garde such as Sonia Delaunay."--BOOK JACKET
