Description
"My tribute to a true genius and a friend." - Prosper Assouline For over 35 years, Prosper Assouline and Azzedine Alaia were close friends. As a tribute to their friendship, Prosper Assouline decided to republish Assouline's 1992 "Collector's Book" on Alaia's Summer 1992 show that lays bare the work of a creative artist. Never before had a haute couture designer given such an in-depth view of the secret alchemy that goes into a fashion show. Azzedine Alaia was not one to do things the way everyone else had done, so it was fitting that he would be the first to produce such a work. What this book offers is the complete story of a fashion show from start to finish, including: everyone participating, all of the objects required, and every item of decor or inspiration which helped form Alaia's work. It is like a seismographic recording of all the emotions, colours, fabrics, and shapes that go into creating a fashion show. The French call such a show a "collection," hence the title Livre de Collection, which offers an inside view of an intensely creative universe. This book also redresses what could be described as an injustice of the fashion world by giving a durable form to the eminently ephemeral event that is a couture show. It is a permanent record of the creative chaos that is a feature of every fashion collection, an ordered reflection of the fragile and wonderful craziness in which a creative artist lives and works. A faithful mirror, this "Collector's Book" reflects the intense and magnificent work of artist Azzedine Alaia. AUTHOR: A master of style, Prosper Assouline is known for merging the modern and the classical in publishing and creative design. With a vision of bringing luxury into the world of print, he founded Assouline Publishing with his wife Martine, in Paris in 1994, creating a world of exclusivity in books and brand identity. Under Prosper's direction, Assouline has invented a visual language that is internationally recognised for its excellence. 200 illustrations
