Overview

· A rare glimpse into the lives of trendsetting fashionistas

·Presents seven years of documentary catwalk shots from New York, London, Milan, and Paris

·Foreword by British supermodel Erin O’Connor.

"I am rarely front of house, I am always backstage. The adrenaline is amazing; placing the hats just-so, tweaking a veil, shoving in another flower, crossing my fingers and praying that my confections don't fall off! Those last moments as the girls line up backstage is the most exciting time of the entire creative process; six months condensed into a few seconds; like bolts of lightning speeding onto the runway. This book captures that moment.”–Stephen Jones OBE

Through a series of candid photographs taken over the last seven years covering all the different elements that make up the catwalk shows, the uninitiated viewer will get an insight into the chaos that makes up the apparently glamorous world of fashion shows!

This book allows the reader to be a fly on the wall, portraying the reality of the fashion world in a documentary style. Featuring quotes from several industry professionals and reporters–make up artists, hair stylists, models, editors, designers and bloggers–this title communicates in a contemporary vernacular to capture the way that fashion is expressed and recorded in today's world of social networking and blogging, the popularity of which has instigated a huge change in the layman's ability to break into the fashion world.

Firmly in tune with the current vibe and with a definite London edginess, A Front Row Seat is a sensational design statement in itself.

Published to coincide with the exhibition “From Catwalk to Cover” at The Fashion and Textile Museum, November 18, 2011 to February 26, 2012. The exhibition will feature work from the author, Kirstin Sinclair.
