An illustrated study of the life and work of American film and couture designer Gilbert Adrian. Adrian was chief costume designer at MGM studios between 1928 and 1941, during which time he created Judy Garland's gingham pinafore in The Wizard of Oz, Katherine Hepburn's white and gold gown in The Philadelphia Story, and numerous outfits for Greta Garbo. In 1942 he started his own fashion label, dressing the American woman with his elegant drapery.
