Fashion Book: Fashion Now, iD selects the worlds 150 most important designers
"Fashion Now: iD selects the worlds 150 most important designers" is a thick little Tashen publication that does just that. The names read like a contemporary 'who's who' of fashion within a 20 year period.
Looking at this book is like bringing together current magazines articles on global fashion designers. Each is given information that can include interviews, profiles and general bio information along with several photos of their work. This is the kind of book every designer, or student of design should have.
Having all of this information in one book makes it easy to look up a name, check out a designer's 'look' or get a quick overview. Just to give you a better idea of the scope of this book, I include here only a few pages of the comprehensive index of names.
