'an usually revealing insight into the designer's work'
'revealing [...] photos of Treacy at work. He looks determined and serious, but he has a kind face and he's never a poseur. .. In short, this is a cool book about a great guy.'
'The head-topper extraordinaire gets a tip of the cap in the new book. . .featuring over 200 images of the milliner's museum-quality lids, including head-turning snaps of mega-fierce singer and Bond villainess Grace Jones.'

It is fascinating to see the development of Philip's work throughout the years as he continues to take millinery far beyond anything imaginable.
Wonderful photography features throughout by Kevin Davies who was allowed privileged access to the milliner over a long period. This is one of my favourite books and even if you are not a milliner, as I am, you will enjoy the journey.
My two favourite photographs are one from 1991 for Vogue, when Kevin first met Philip (and rejected by Vogue.) The second is Philip helping Naomi Campbell get ready for her first visit to Ascot.
This is a biography in pictures of one of our most outstanding and inspiring fashion designers.
