|About the Book|
In these fascinating and revealing interviews, influential figures from every aspect of the world of fashion share their stories, insights, and experiences. Journalist Jan Kedves isnt afraid to ask a pointed question, and his subjects certainly arent afraid to answer. Whether its Bruce Weber discussing nudity, dogs, and Clint Eastwood- Juergen Teller talking about daring shoots with Charlotte Rampling, Victoria Beckham, and the one time he may have gone too far- or Raf Simons waxing nostalgic about his days and nights as a club kid, this collection of interviews goes beyond the latest trends to distill what makes its subjects tick. A fashion-world insider in his own right, Kedves knows how to talk to models, designers, photographers, and artists, sharing his own opinions and recollections as a way of drawing out even the most reticent. As a result, his conversations with the likes of Pierre Cardin, Malcolm McLaren, Rick Owens, Helmut Lang, and Veruschka can feel as intimate as a late-night gabfest, and every bit as fun. Other interviewees include the following: Miguel Adrover, Walter Van Beirendonck, Bless, Damir Doma, Michel Gaubert, Jean-Paul Goude, Iris van Herpen, Nick Knight, Charlie Le Mindu, Willi Ninja, Diane Pernet, Loic Prigent, Viviane Sassen, Valerie Steele, Barbara Vinken, Bernhard Willhelm, Zaldy.
