Rapture Surveys the Collision of Two Glamorous Worlds: Art and Fashion. Modern Icons and Iconographers - Artists. Photographers, Fashion Designers, Models - Have Increasingly Been Crossing Boundaries to Create New and Seductive Images for A Sophisticated Audience. From Helmut Newton's Inspirational, Controversial Photography and Jenny Holzer's Radical Statements, Through Elisa Jimenez's Edgy Performances and Ybas' Recent Collaborations with Kate Moss for Vogue. To Mutilated Magazine Images and Reworked Catwalk Footage, This Crossover is Fertile Ground for the Creative and the Original.

Author Chris Townsend Shows How the Alluring, Illusory Faces of Art and Fashion are Fused in the New Mix. Raising Questions About Identity, Style, Culture, Commerce and Beauty, This Book Reveals the Ambivalent Relationship Between Art and Fashion, and Shows the Spectacular Visual Resulis As Artists Both Succume to Fashion's Powerful Lure and at the Same Time Recoil From it.
