Show Studio’s Lou Stoppard interviews Iain R Webb about his new book
Enter the exclusive world of front-row fashion with this phenomenal collection of 300 contemporary show invitations. Spanning the past four decades, this book charts key moments and events from all four fashion capitals – New York, London, Milan and Paris.
In addition to the invitations in their various forms – whimsical, political, humorous, controversial and artistic – the collection includes programme notes, look books, posters and promotional objects – all of which have rarely been seen outside the industry. From Chanel to Comme des Garçons and Moschino to McQueen, this book, expertly curated by Iain R. Webb, offers a unique insight into the creative mind of each designer as well as a rare opportunity to share in the fashion-show experience.
