Azzedine Alaïa By Francois Baudot Assouline Book

Published in 2006 by Assouline, this book by Francois Baudot is a celebration of Azzedine Alaia, considered by many to be the foremost designer of the sexiest, trendiest, and most utterly original clothes produced by any contemporary designer. He sadly died November 18 2017.

More like a sculptor of dresses than a ready-to-wear designer, Azzedine Alaia has influenced fashion for more than thirty years. Appearing on the scene at the beginning of the 1980s, the Tunisian innovator remains one of the most remarkable personalities in the world of fashion. Constantly researching new materials and pioneering the art of the cut, this book shows why Alaïa is still so revered by his fanatic celebrity clientele and the fashion world at large.

The story of the young designer is told with flair and intelligence and is lushly illustrated with top-echelon photography of Alaia's signature creations - in all their exuberance and sensuality.

Azzedine Alaïa By Francois Baudot Assouline Book. $25.00 at Amazon USA.
