Description - The London Fashion Book by Andrew Tucker
This volume opens the door to a glittering, fascinating, absolutely fabulous world - a world in which the Spice Girls, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Kate Moss, Stella McCartney, Central St Martins School of Art and Portobello Market are all part of the extraordinary exuberant phenomenon known as British fashion. Paris has resorted to borrowing the genius of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. Hip young designers are discovered every day. What is it about London that makes it such a hotbed of creativity? In this book, Andrew Tucker presents an insider's tour of talents, from well established designers to newcomers like Hussein Chalayan and Copperwheat Blundell. These clothes designers are linked to others: hatters such as Philip Treacy, shoemakers, such as Patrick Cox and Manolo Blahnik, jewellers, underwear makers and many others. The book includes a comprehensive reference section which lists names and addresses of London's specialist shops, including many known only to the cognoscenti, and of designers, photographers and textile makers.
