Product description

Review

'In this fascinating read, Drake reveals the fashion industry's constant flux between in and out, right and wrong, and how Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld trod a rivalrous tightrope' Glamour 'This is an extremely readable and impressively researched book' Guardian 'If you have the slightest interest in late-twentieth-century culture, you should read this book' Gay Times 'Thoroughly entertaining ... Starting with the student riots of 1968 and ending with the shadow of Aids, this is an important social history' Independent on Sunday

Book Description

'Fashion is an endless process of elimination- in and out, now and then, new and old, right and wrong ... But with the thrill of being chosen comes the fear of the fall from grace.'
