    Book details


Hollywood's Golden Age was graced with thousands of breathtaking looks by a designer who was known simply as Irene. Based on unprecedented access to the records and remembrances of Irene's personal artist, Virginia Fisher, this insider's look tells the story of Irene's years at MGM studios. Marvellously illustrated with over 150 original sketches and photography from the time period, Irene's exhilarating story, filled with memories that have a cloying edge and are, at times, chilling, comes to life in this thoroughly researched resource on her career and legacy. From her early years as a designer with a successful dress shop catering to Hollywood clientele to her ascendancy at MGM studios to the beginning of her own label, Irene, Inc., this volume captures Irene's struggles and triumphs surrounding her time at MGM. Complete with a filmography of Irene's designs and full of insightful cameos by stars like Judy Garland, Lana Turner, and others, this is the ideal book for film and costume historians, fashion designers, and fans of Hollywood's Golden Age.
