Undressed : Interviews with New Zealand Fashion Designers
A collection of profiles of the great, contemporary clothing designers and labels that have made New Zealand fashion objects of desire, not only at home, but also in major fashion capitals around the world. Designers share their business and personal stories, influences and inspirations, philosophies, working practices, preferred fabrics and colour and shapes. New Zealand fashion has been described as dark, intense, interesting, distinctive and innovative - and absolutely fabulous. Where does this creativity come from? And why has such a small country made such a name for itself in this industry? The text features interviews with people like: Marilyn Sainty, Karen Walker, World, Helen Cherry and Workshop, DNA, Nom D, Zambesi, Blanchet, Kate Sylvester, State of Grace, Trelise Cooper and Tanya Carlson.
