While we may be familiar with the fabulous imagination of Gustav Klimt and his portraits of femmes fatales or mythical women, we are less aware of the fact that the artist also made a name for himself in fashion. With his mistress Emilie Flöge, who managed one of the most prominent couture houses in Vienna, he designed “reform” dresses, thus taking part in the revolutionary movement that was rocking artistic and middle class Vienna at the time. By photographing these designs for a magazine, Gustav Klimt became the first photographer of the history of fashion.
Christian BrandstÃ¤tter, doctor of law, was born in 1913 in Lambach(Upper Austria). He came into publishing in 1968 and has been publishing and designing prize-winning art books since 1971. Lecturer at the Institute of Journalism of the University of Vienna from 1991, he is also the author of several books on the history of Austrian art and culture, including Klimt et les femmes (Paris, Flammarion, 1993). He lives in Vienna. ISBN: 97828432341706.0 x 8.5 in | 15.5 x 21.5 cm80 Pages | 60 ImagesHardcover
