5.0 out of 5 stars Notes on a "Genius"!, 28 Oct. 2010
A couple of books this year have really blown me away and this was one of them. McQueen, my ultimate all time favourite designer, I just had to have it. In my opinion it took the best of all of his amazing creative collections and put it all together. The quality of the book itself is great. I guess it had to be to be able to really see how beautiful all the pieces were, as with McQueen the beauty was in the detail beneath the detail! He was a truly creative mastermind and will be sadly missed. Its a great coffee table book but also great as a pictorial history of some of his most creative and influential pieces that rocked the fashion world! A beautiful book and a great price for a little slice of beauty! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" book..., 28 Oct. 2010
This book is a fashionista's "Must have". In fact if you love beautiful, well written books that wouldn't put you to shame on your coffee table then this is for you! To start, the cover of the book is beautifully bound in embossed slate satin. Open the pages to be mesmerised by gorgeous photo's of nearly all of the most influential designers in the world (bar the ones not with us anymore...! ) taken by the amazing Rankin. Not only does this book look very impressive but its also a great read. Its unusual that you are given a birds eye view into the fashion world directly by the designers themselves, all in one book! An eye opener for sure but also a great source of inspiration, not just for the fashion industry but for anyone who needs a creative injection or if you just love beautiful books! Also some great shots of the key pieces throughout the history of the brands that really made a mark in fashion. All in all, I love this book and it comes highly recommended! GORGEOUS!
