7.100 Contemporary Fashion Designers
“From i-D creator Terry Jones, this compact survey taken from the Fashion Now! series is your go-to guide to the designers transforming the way we dress. This encyclopedic handbook profiles both the reigning kings and queens—such as Miuccia Prada and Jean Paul Gaultier—alongside the up-and-coming, like Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Stella McCartney.”
“Mario Testino’s Undressed removes various layers. Coinciding with an exhibition conceived exclusively for the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, this intimate series explores the notion of undressing in photography as much as it lays Testino’s archive bare, probing beyond the photographer’s established public image to reveal a deeper understanding of his practice and oeuvre.
The 50 featured photographs center on the naked body, alternately exploring and pushing the traditions and boundaries between sex, gender identity, and fashion. Honoring the influence of Helmut Newton, the images become abstracted body landscapes, the protagonists appearing as mere form, a torso, even a statue.”

“In this illustrated fashion story, 400 fashion advertisements from the Jim Heimann Collection trace not only the changing trends and silhouettes of the 20th century but also the evolution in their marketing, as fashion developed from an exclusive Parisian salon business into today’s global mega-industry.”
