Description

Three decades of fashion brought together in one collection, worn as originally intended by the collector herself, and developed over five years by established fashion and portrait photographer Frederic Aranda: this is Electric Fashion. But why is it electric? It is the story of how the collector, Christine Suppes, blazed an indelible trail into online fashion editorial whilst developing a unique collection in the heart of Silicon Valley. Electric Fashion is essential viewing, punctuated with academic perspective, comprehensive technical references, and archival text from the collections accompanying website. This timeless tome boasts a double vantage point; on the one hand, each garment is photographed in a studio setting to enhance critical academic understanding, whilst on the other, worn by the collector herself at locations around the world to depict the garments as they were originally intended to be worn. The finished product is a 360 degree view of fashion, from historical, cultural, and practical standpoints.show more

Review quote

-[Electric Fashion] is a fashion photography treasure trove. The true essence of fashion, especially haute couture is fantasy. And creating fantasy is exactly what Christine Suppes and Frederic Aranda extraordinarily achieved . . . Christine's nostalgic and captivating narrative, which gradually unfolds her impeccable fashion taste honed since childhood, Frederic Aranda's expert captures of Christine and her collection, tied in a bow with Ken Downing's succinct and effective foreword, Electric Fashion is a definite must-have for fashion lovers.--FaFaFoom.comshow more
