Book: Fashion + Music

From Kansai Yamamoto with David Bowie to Nicola Formichetti with Lady Gaga, Fashion + Music looks at how fashion creatives shape pop culture

A new book from publishers Laurence King looks at how a handful fashion creatives helped build today’s pop stars.

Among those included in Fashion + Music are Kansai Yamamoto, the Japanese designer who created outfits for David Bowie and Lady Gaga; Grace Jones’s art director Jean-Paul Gode; Nicola Formichetti, creative director for Lady Gaga, Brooke Candy and Color Code; and Judy Blame, who styled Boy George, Neneh Cherry, Massive Attack, Björk, Baaba Maal, and Iggy Pop.

The book was authored by Katie Baron, a London based writer, editor, and creative consultant. She has contributed for The Times, Dazed & Confused and Vogue, among others. Baron is also the global Head of Retail for trend-forecasting, research and advisory agency Stylus.
