In or Out? Right or Wrong? Now or So Then? Fashion Tastemaking is an Endless Procession of Front Row Seats, Paparazzi...& the Contant Threat of a Fall from Grace. "The Beautiful Fall" Documents Paris in the 1970s. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG
Being among the chosen provides the nervous adrenaline on which fashion thrives - a highly visible state of grace which is played out in the front rows of fashion shows, on the covers of magazines, and being invited to the right parties. But fashion's compulsion for change means it is only ever a matter of time before you are out-wrong-so-last-minute; and it's this delicate coexistence of euphoria and fear that creates an endlessly fascinating spectacle.
In the entertaining tradition of Peter Biskind's Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, The Beautiful Fall: Lagerfeld, Saint Laurent, and Glorious Excess in 1970s Paris documents the high-chic fashion wars of 1970s Paris. Available at HachetteBookGroupUSA.com
