About this Item

"First Edition" stated; number line complete 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. Small black remainder mark to front page edges; DJ has small tears to corners: very good in very good. A book of large-format fashion photos, most in color, many wonderful and some just odd. Originally priced at $49.95, once thought scarce, some copies are now coming back on the market, albeit through the hands of post-literate sellers who seem to call everything "acceptable" . . . whatever that means. Not paginated. A NOTE TO OUR OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS: While we welcome offshore orders, heavy books present a special problem. We ship our books in boxes, and all international boxes of more than 4 lbs. must now travel by air, "Priority Mail." This book is thus likely to cost something on the order of $54 to ship overseas. This copy now reduced from $47. Bookseller Inventory # 003598

About this title

Synopsis:

"Why does the response 'I'm a fashion editor' induce rolling eyeballs in immigration people, scanning looks from fellow women, and smiles of patronage from chauvinistic business men?" asks British-born Sarajane Hoare, formerly a fashion editor at such top glossies as British Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. "Oh, of course: aren't we meant to be a bunch of hysterics screeching Think Pink, and lugging trunks of frocks across exotic landscapes?" Talking Fashion is the wonderful and visually erudite answer to that rhetorical question. Talking Fashion, Hoare's first monograph, is a lively treatise on the inner workings of the fashion industry, delivered with Hoare's unflappable wit and wisdom, and illustrated by scores of spectacular images by today's most celebrated fashion photographers.

From glomming the right looks from the runways in Milan to her misadventures on an active Hawaiian volcano during a shoot, Hoare offers hilarious anecdotes and insightful commentary, unveiling the glamorous mystique of the fashion industry—enlightening and entertaining aspiring fashionistas, photographers, magazine addicts, and fashion editors-to-be. Talking Fashion showcases a couture collection of the finest photographers working in fashion, featuring the works of Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Herb Ritts, and many others who have shot top models for the most glamorous glossies over the past decade.
