Norman Hartnell (1901–1979) was a unique British designer. By the mid-1930s, his meteoric rise to fame had made London a center of style that closely rivaled Paris. While Hartnell clients included members of the English upper class and the best-known stage and film actresses, it was his royal patronage that assured him a place in history. Hartnell’s famous White Wardrobe, designed for Queen Elizabeth and photographed by Cecil Beaton, changed the image of royalty forever. The Queen’s extraordinary Coronation dress, as well as the sublime wedding gown created for Princess Margaret, remains iconic to this day. Decades of achievement were rewarded with a knighthood in 1977, making Sir Norman Hartnell the first fashion designer to be so honored. In Be Dazzled! Norman Hartnell: Sixty Years of Glamour and Fashion, the only illustrated monograph on this couturier, royal enthusiasts and style connoisseurs can examine Hartnell’s never-before published drawings, vintage photographs, fabric samples, and personal scrapbooks.
