Overview

The next installment in the bestselling “Selby” series, Fashionable Selby explores the kaleidoscopic world of fashion, featuring profiles of today’s most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more. The subjects include a mix of the avant-garde, the traditional, the must-haves, and the totally unexpected. Chapters on individual artists bring readers inside their studios, workshops, and homes, and include Selby’s signature photographs and watercolors of not only the artists and their environments, but also the things that inspire them, the materials they use, their creative process, the people who work alongside them, and the final pieces. From the showroom of one of the Antwerp Six to the studios of Central St. Martins in London to a punk knitter in Brooklyn, Selby captures some of fashion’s biggest names, rising stars, and best-kept secrets.

Editorial Reviews

Style watcher and photographer Todd Selby enjoys documenting the lives—and living spaces of creative people. On his blog (The Selby.com) and in his books (The Selby is in Your Place; The Edible Selby), this delightfully nosy visitor has invited readers into the spaces of artists working in an almost dizzying variety of mediums. His Fashionable Selby eases us into the many sides of fashion with profiles, photos, watercolors, and visits to artists' abodes, studios, and workshops. In addition to fashion designers and stylist, this colorful hardcover spotlights models, haberdashers, and even shoemakers. Eyebrow-raising; mind-expanding takes on fashion.
