Fashion Babylon - Imogen Edwards-Jones

What is fashion? What is fashionable? Who decides what is in? What is out? Why is it green ... more

one year, and blue the next? Why is one little
black dress worth three thousand pounds and
another thirty quid? Is the catwalk that catty? Is
everyone high on drugs and full of champagne? What
makes a supermodel so super? And a designer too
hot to touch? Who is making the money? Who owns
who? Who hates who? And who's in each other's
pocket? Following in the glamorous footsteps of
"Hotel Babylon and Air Babylon", "Fashion Babylon"
will get under the well-cut skin of the fashion
industry. Using a world renowned source, "Fashion
Babylon" will take you through six months in a
designer's life. Starting at the end of one
catwalk show, it will explain how a collection is
put together - from the rail of found objects, to
how it gets on to the catwalk, into the shops and
onto the covers of a magazine. It will tell you
who goes to the shows, where they sit and whose
backside one needs to kiss to get there. It will
introduce you to a host of places and characters,
it will take you into a world where women get paid
tens of thousands for getting dressed in the
morning and where a wrong shirt length can cost
you your career. Witty, naughty and full of
gripping detail, "Fashion Babylon" will explain
the mark -ups, talk you through fashion's two
seasons and discuss the money and commerce behind
one of the most international, lucrative and
secretive of businesses. With something for the
simple follower of fashion as well as the hardcore
fashionista, "Fashion Babylon" will change the way
you sashay into Top Shop, flick through the pages
of "Vogue" and enter the portals of Harvey Nichols
forever.
