No topic is off-limits to Fern Mallis, award-winning creator of Fashion Week in New York, when she hosts “Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis” at New York’s prestigious 92nd Street Y, a series of in-depth interviews she launched in 2011 with the fashion industry’s most talented, successful, and legendary personalities.
Featuring nineteen inspiring, no-holds-barred interviews with American fashion icons including Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Polly Mellen, Bruce Weber, and Oscar de la Renta, this engaging book introduces readers to the real men and women behind the legendary public personas, providing a fascinating perspective on their work and lives.
Profound, funny, and provocative, and accompanied by never-before-seen personal photographs provided by the interviewees, these discussions range from childhood inspirations and behind-the-scenes industry details, to invaluable advice on how to succeed in the fashion world. Mallis’s Q&A format combines the intimacy of a tête-à-tête with the dynamic energy of a live audience, sparking candid and unexpected conversations. Trusting Mallis as a fellow fashion insider, these luminaries provide a revealing window into the early forces that drove them to height of achievement in a notoriously fickle business, at the same time painting a vivid picture of the culture and inner workings of the fashion industry today.
