Designers A-Z

Last night I attended the New York book launch of Valerie Steele's (and Suzy Menkes') Taschen book Designers A-Z.  Featuring 103 designers this book is quite the collector's item. A total limited edition run of 11,000 copies were printed and hand bound with fabrics contributed by 1 of 6 designers: Akris, Diane Von Furstenberg, Etro, Missoni, Prada and Stella Mc Cartney. At a price tag of $350 (or $220 on Amazon.com) it will be out of reach for many but please do yourselves a fashion favor and visit the Taschen store to browse through.
