This revealing volume provides unprecedented access to master designers and industry leaders. No topic is off-limits to Fern Mallis, award-winning creator of Fashion Week in New York, when she hosts Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis at New York s prestigious 92nd Street Y, a series of in-depth interviews with the fashion industry s most talented, successful, and legendary personalities. Featuring nineteen inspiring interviews with American fashion luminaries, this engaging book introduces readers to the real artists behind these very public figures. These no-holds-barred interviews, combined with never-before-seen personal photographs from interviewees such as Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Polly Mellen, Bruce Weber, and more bring a fascinating, compelling perspective to their work. Profound, funny, and provocative, the discussions range from childhood inspirations to nitty-gritty industry details to advice on how to succeed in the fashion business today. Mallis s Q&A format combines the intimate approach of a tete-a-tete with the dynamics of a live audience, sparking candid and inspiring conversations. With Mallis, fashion luminaries drop their public personas and provide a window into the inner workings and culture of the fashion industry."
