Fashion Designers A-z
From Azzedine AlaÃ¯a, CristÃ³bal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, a centuryâ€™s worth of fashion greats from the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology are celebrated in this limited-edition volume. Photographs of over 500 garments selected from the Museumâ€™s permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while texts by the curators explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured.
In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon; and both Steele and contributor Suzy Menkes provide a history of this museumâ€™s role in the world of fashion scholarship and preservation.

Each edition (a total of 11,000 copies) is bound in a fabric created by one of six designers Akris, Etro, Stella McCartney, Missoni, Prada, and Diane von Furstenberg and comes in a Plexiglas box.
Crafted by hand at a bindery in the heart of Italy, and stamped with a unique number, every copy is an instant classic, and an addition to your fashion library that is truly one-of-a-kind. The Stella McCartney Edition of 2,000 numbered copies is adorned with a Neon Abstract Print on cotton satin from her Summer 2013 collection available in two different palettes. True to McCartneyâ€™s modern, fresh, style, the prints pop with color and sensuality. Orders placed online will be fulfilled with one of the pictured Stella McCartney fabrics.

A systematic and comprehensive introduction to the study of nonlinear dynamical systems, in both discrete and continuous time, for nonmathematical students and researchers working in applied fields. An understanding of linear systems and the classical theory of stability are essential although basic reviews of the relevant material are provided. Further chapters are devoted to the stability of invariant sets, bifurcation theory, chaotic dynamics and the transition to chaos. In the final two chapters the authors approach the subject from a measure-theoretical point of view and compare results to those given for the geometrical or topological approach of the first eight chapters. Includes about one hundred exercises. A Windows-compatible software programme called DMC, provided free of charge through a website dedicated to the book, allows readers to perform numerical and graphical analysis of dynamical systems. Also available on the website are computer exercises and solutions to selected book exercises. See www.cambridge.org/economics/resources
