From Raf Simons to Nick Knight in their own Words
In these fascinating and revealing interviews, influential figures from every aspect of the world of fashion share their stories, insights, and experiences.
Journalist Jan Kedves isn’t afraid to ask a pointed question, and his subjects certainly aren’t afraid to answer. Whether it’s Bruce Weber discussing nudity, dogs, and Clint Eastwood; Juergen Teller talking about daring shoots with Charlotte Rampling, Victoria Beckham, and the one time he may have gone too far; or Raf Simons waxing nostalgic about his days and nights as a club kid, this collection of interviews goes beyond the latest trends to distill what makes its subjects tick. A fashion-world insider in his own right, Kedves knows how to talk to models, designers, photographers, and artists, sharing his own opinions and recollections as a way of drawing out even the most reticent. As a result, his conversations with the likes of Pierre Cardin, Malcolm McLaren, Rick Owens, Viviane Sassen, Helmut Lang, and Veruschka can feel as intimate as a late-night gabfest, and every bit as fun.
