The other side of the picture.

I'm really into reading and I'm just obsessed about books. And 'cause I'm also so obsessed about fashion, what could be better for me then a book about fashion? Thats the reason why I just discovered this fantastic new book by Olivier Theyskens who's a great and established fashion designer. He worked together with Julien Claessens who's an awesome photographer and the result is hardly breathtaking because they show the other side of fashion industry. All pics are taken behind the runways and they show all these turbulences and furthermore how the models behave normally behind all that glamour on stage. I think the book tells exactly that fashion is a real thing, and thats really great!

Here's what Amazon says about:

When he was twenty, Olivier Theyskens dropped out of design school to create his first collection. Within the next year, Women’s Wear Daily headlined his “Star Quality,” Harpers Bazaar christened him an “Instant Icon,” and The New York Times singled out his work in coverage of the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, where it was already enshrined. That winter, Madonna wore Theyskens to the Oscars. In the decade since, he has lent his power to two international brands, “restoring the fortunes,” as Vogue put it, of the house of Rochas, and then moving on to Nina Ricci as artistic director. His work has appeared on the cover of French, British, and American Vogue worn by Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, among other stars. Even the most casually fashion conscious consumers know his name, his striking face, and his dark, soft, and often-flattering aesthetic. Now, for the first time in his whirlwind career, Theyskens has made time to look back over his work and to press it into a book for worldwide distribution.Olivier Theyskens will track his rise, catalog his oeuvre, and offer a beautiful showcase for the romantic, mysterious, sumptuous garments on its pages.
