Olivier Theyskens: She Walks in Beauty
'a haunting, moody, poetic, and yet wildly enlightening reading experience... Unquestionably this is a book that should be read and in some cases should be required reading for those who believe that their future lies in the world of fashion' - New York Journal of Books
This book is the first complete monograph on the Belgian designer Olivier Theyskens and surveys his twenty-year career in the fashion industry. Published on the occasion of an exhibition at Antwerp's MoMu, this book is an engaging history and story of the young designer's trajectory into the world of international fashion encompassing his work for Rochas and Nina Ricci; then the affordable ready-to-wear label, Theory in New York and finally the recent re-launch of his own brand.
Theyskens was closely involved with the creation of the catalogue selecting the photographs of designs from each period of his career and producing drawings created for the publication, which Vogue describes as 'a work of art in itself.'
