About the Author
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 décor or inspiration which helped form Alaïa’s work. It is like a seismographic recording of all the emotions, colors, 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 Alaïa.
