Great! I just bought another copy of Beautiful Fall to give my cousin for Christmas- she lived in Paris all during the 70s and she is a Chanel Girl; I'm sure it will mean a lot to her!

Thierry Mugler: Fashion Fetish Fantasy , 1998

Not much text, but the images are def. worth the price, about 200 pages of full Thierry Mugler's work. Images from the runway, editorials and some photography by Thierry himself, and other photos taken specifically for the book.


(goodreads)

His photography book from 1989 is neat as well, but this one as many images that appear there as well.

His other book that just came out in 2010 is fantastic, it has more text and you get to know more about Thierry and where he got his inspirations.

Less pictures and smaller but it contains great detail shots. Several of his Haute Couture pieces were photographed again and in great detail for this book, you can really appreciate the craftsmanship even more.

There is this book called Deluxe that totally opened my eyes about how fashion brands are runned and managed.
Like how fashion really works and it's not only about creativity but also an industry.
But its very interesting because it talks also about the story of brands and groups,
I mean it's a light lecture, not a "business" one, there is a lot of "gossip"
