Interviews With Fashion DesignersBook - 2001
Serious fashionistas will simply devour Visionaries, Susannah Frankel's collection of in-depth interviews with 23 of the world's top couturiers -- and the only book of its kind. From Azzedine Alaia to Zandra Rhodes, Ghost to Jean-Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood to Junya Watanabe, plus, of course, the names behind such universally recognized monograms as CdG, D&G, and YSL, each ultra-chic subject openly deconstructs his or her own designs. Originally written at pivotal moments in their careers, the profiles offer exclusive insights into not only the mind of the creator in question, but also the cultural climate at the time. Archival runway pictures, portraits, and glamorous new shots by some of the hottest photographers in the industry illustrate this sharp, smart volume.
