Northbank enjoyed collaborating for the fourth time with author Richard Lester to design the Dress of the Year book – a study of five decades of award-winning fashion from Mary Quant in 1963 to Christopher Kane in 2013, drawn from the renowned collection at the Fashion Museum, Bath. Each year, a different fashion expert is invited to choose the outfit that is the most exciting, or directional, or simply sums up the year in fashion. The announcement of each winner is widely covered in the British press, and the resulting Dress of the Year collection is a treasure trove of international design. Commissioned by ACC Editions, this book reveals the Dress of The Year collection in all its glory for the first time.
