Fashion Designers A-z
From Azzedine AlaÃ¯a, CristÃ³bal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, a centuryâ€™s worth of fashion greats from the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology are celebrated in this limitededition volume. Photographs of over 500 garments selected from the Museumâ€™s permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while texts by the curators explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured.
In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon; and both Steele and contributor Suzy Menkes provide a history of this museumâ€™s role in the world of fashion scholarship and preservation.
Fashion Designers Aâ€“Z is available as a series of six Designer Editions. Each edition (a total of 11,000 copies) is bound in a fabric created by one of six designers Akris, Etro, Stella McCartney, Missoni, Prada, and Diane von Furstenberg and comes in a Plexiglas box.
Crafted by hand at a bindery in the heart of Italy, and stamped with a unique number, every copy is an instant classic, and an addition to your fashion library that is truly one-of-a-kind. Reprinted especially for the Akris Edition of 2,000 copies, designer Albert KriemlerÂ´s iconic â€œGrand Prixâ€ digital photo print was created for his Akris Spring/Summer collection 2012.
â€œIn the spirit of the devil-may-care elegance of John FrankenheimerÂ´s 1966 movie Grand Prixâ€ (Kriemler), the race cars whizzing by on silk crÃªpe found a suitable patroness: H.S.H. Princess CharlÃ¨ne of Monaco wore an Akris shift dress with the â€œGrand Prixâ€ print to the Formula One races in Monte Carlo.

Everything Has A Designer
There are countless things around us, and all of them were created by someone or a group of people. Every moment of our lives we are standing or sitting on something that was designed. If we can look at these things and recognize there is a designer and they didn't come about by chance, so we have got to see it in ourselves and the world around us.
