Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stunning compilation of 200 photographs accompanied by essays on culture and style for the fashion-conscious everywhere to enjoy. Sumptuously illustrated and extravagantly produced, Fashion is a tribute to what we wear and why we wear it. While current fashion is fusing diverse cultural styles, National Geographic author Cathy Newman provides a fascinating global perspective on the historical and cultural significance of clothing and adornment. This timely--and timeless--subject is explored in evocative essays and lavish illustrations that offer a fresh perspective for today's style-obsessed culture. Featuring lively, anecdotal interviews from contemporary designers, fashion editors, historians, and cultural anthropologists, Fashion offers a dynamic approach to this sumptuous topic from industry insiders. Newman, focusing on the body adorned, infuses her narrative with a sense of appreciation for the decadence and innovation that surrounds the notion of style. Intelligent, tantalizing, and extravagant, Fashion is a unique compilation of spectacular images, clothes, designs, and writing.

Synopsis:

In this sumptuous new book, Cathy Newman provides a fresh perspective on a fascinating subject. Fashion explores clothing and adornment from a uniquely global perspective, at a time when current fashion is fusing diverse cultural styles as never before.

Lively and provocative essays, drawn from interviews with prominent fashion industry insiders—including contemporary designers, fashion editors, and curators—give new insights into the role fashion has played in history, while Newman’s essays focus on the body adorned, from hair to garb accessories. The book’s introductory essays are written by cultural anthropologist Joanne Eicher and fashion historian Valerie Mendes. Combining illuminating text with exquisite archival and contemporary images, Fashion is not only an essential reference tool but also a gorgeously designed volume that will stand out in both the art and photography markets. This remarkable book offers a thorough and tantalizing look at the ways in which fashion shapes us and the world in which we live.
