Anna Sui is one of New York's most beloved and accomplished fashion designers, known for creating contemporary clothing inspired by vintage styles and cultural archetypes, with textiles that she designs herself. Sui joined New York's intensely creative cultural underground in the 1980s, forging important relationships in the worlds of fashion, photography, art, music, and design. The World of Anna Sui looks at Sui's eclectic career as a designer and artist, both through her clothing and studio. Through interviews with fashion journalist Tim Blanks, the book explores Sui's lifelong engagement with fashion archetypes--the rocker, the schoolgirl, the goth, the bohemian, and more--and reveals their inspiration and influence. Complete with detailed photographs of the garments, sketches, moodboards, runway shots, and cultural ephemera, The World of Anna Sui/i> is an inside look at this iconic New York designer with a cult following.
