In his foreword, Billy Wilder states, "What is elegance? Let me put it this way: either you are born with it or you better forget it." Wilder simply defines the personage of Ernst Dryden, a man who exemplified not only elegance but the absolute designer. Dryden began as a poster and magazine illustrator; advanced to a new career in mens-wear design; was commissioned in 1926 to work for Die Dame (Germany's answer to Vogue); and moved to Paris until 1933 when he left to design dresses in New York. Four years prior to his death, Dryden was in Hollywood as one of film's preeminent costume designers. This celebration reveals not only Dryden's genius but his innovative contributions to the period when Art Deco and refined elegance reigned supreme. Includes black-and-white photos, color reproductions of illustrations, bibliography of collections; index. --Janet Lawrence From Booklist, (c) American Library Association.
