The iconic British style magazine i-D once again brings you a guide to the world`s most important designers. From the biggest players in the international fashion industry including Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, and Marc Jacobs, to emerging names such as Kim Jones and Tess Giberson, to streetwear and sportswear brands A Bathing Ape, Nike, Diesel and Silas, Fashion Now 2 is a comprehensive survey of today`s best designers.
Expanded from the previous edition, Fashion Now 2 is illustrated with the very best fashion photography and styling, extracted from shoots in the archives of the magazine that celebrated its 25th birthday in 2005. Also included are an introduction by i-D founder and editor-in-chief Terry Jones, and in-depth essays on the issues that are shaping fashion today: the fashion show system, the precarious position of the celebrity designer, and the rise of menswear. Fashion Now 2 is an encyclopedia of fashion personalities, a portfolio of amazing imagery, but most of all, a snapshot of the fast-changing contemporary fashion world, as seen through the lens of one of the best-loved magazines published today.
