Runway : The Spectacle of Fashion
by Alix Browne

A stunning work on contemporary fashion spectacles, showcasing the most innovative, creative, and artistic high-fashion runway shows of the last twenty years.
In recent years, as fashion shows have become a part of our collective imagination and an important part of contemporary culture, blockbuster productions have redefined the runway show as a form of entertainment and creativity on par with the clothes themselves. This book focuses on designers for whom fashion and the mode of presenting it have held equal significance: Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela, Susan Ciancialo, Issey Miyake, Bernadette Corporation, Ann Demeulemeester, Bernhard Willhelm, Gucci, Helmut Lang, Hussein Chalayan, Viktor & Rolf, Givenchy, Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garçons, Rick Owens, A.F. Vandevorst, Louis Vuitton, W&LT, X-Girl, Christian Dior, Prada, Yeezy, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Raf Simons, Thom Browne, and Imitation of Christ, among them. From the performance art spectacles of the first Alexander McQueen collections in the mid-1990s and the high-art concept shows of Hussein Chalayan in the late 1990s to the lavish beauty of Chanel haute couture in 2012, author Alix Browne explores the highest pinnacles of fashion today. Runway gives the reader full access to the theatrical and creative aspects of the production, in both intimate, little-seen runway shows from the pre-Internet era many of the photographs here have never been published before as well as major productions with elaborate sets and full-blown narrative. Each show is presented through lush, full-bleed photography and many through fold-out four-page images – an index gives a blurb about each runway presentation with further images.

A thrilling, immersive, and inspiring look into the wide-ranging creativity of contemporary fashion, Runway is the most thorough book available on the subject. Featuring the most innovative fashion designers of the last twenty years, this book is a must for lovers of fashion and culture.
