Taschen has published Fashion Designers A–Z, a limited edition series of Books celebrating a century’s worth of fashion greats, taken from the permanent collection of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, the FIT. Photographs of over 500 garments selected from the Museum’s permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while texts by the curators explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured.
Fashion Designers A–Z is available as a series of six Designer Editions. Each edition is published in a total of 11,000 copies. The book is bound in a fabric created by one of six designers – Akris, Etro, Stella McCartney, Missoni, Prada, and Diane von Furstenberg – and comes in a Plexiglas box. Crafted by hand at a bindery in the heart of Italy, and stamped with a unique number, every copy is an instant classic, and an addition to your fashion library that is truly one-of-a-kind.
