Stylists are some of the most influential people working within the fashion industry. Until now they were largely unsung heroes, but they are becoming increasingly well known in their own right, alongside the photographers, art directors and magazine editors of the industry.
This book covers styling for commercial ad campaigns, catwalk shows and fashion editorial, as well as looking inside the business of retail itself, featuring the hugely successful brands and designers for whom the ‘super stylists’ consult. The book showcases not only the work of the most talented stylists working globally but also the crucial partnerships and collaborations that have spawned much of the current creative landscape as we know it.
Featuring stunning imagery and entertaining interviews with some of the biggest names in the field, including Lady Gaga's stylist Nicola Formichetti, Marc Jacob's collaborator Katie Grand and Melanie Ward of Harper's Bazaar, this is an essential book for any aspiring stylist or fashion student.
