This tribute to Alexander McQueen (1969-2010) celebrates the genius of an iconic, imaginative, and inspirational fashion designer with more than 125 catwalk photographs of his work in addition to commentary from an experienced fashion journalist and tributes by prominent people in the fashion world. Also included are photographs from his last collection, presented at Paris Fashion Week in 2010, and hailed by international media and fashion reviewers. The Guardian called it "truly spectacular...a triumph"; the L.A. Times praised it as "masterpieces... runway showstoppers"; The Telegraph raved "The designs were vivid, dramatic and evocative...an emphatic demonstration of the intense skill and artistry of McQueen" and The New York Times reviewed as "His vision of Gothic glory, with a world bathed in religious symbolism, was translated not just with immense subtlety and beauty but also with the urgent futurism that was the essence of his spirit."

McQueen's dramatic designs were artistically successful and internationally recognized. He earned the British Designer of the Year award four times and his work was particularly favored by his celebrity clients including Sarah Jessica Parker, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Bjork, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

Fashion today is a complex phenomenon in a state of constant flux; a mix of different cultural aspects that inform the modern individual. Atlas of Fashion Designers was borne of this proposition – a compilation of the most important fashion designers and their work in the past five years, selected from a multi-disciplinary perspective. All featured designers have one trait in common: they were selected for the quality of their work and the variety of genres in their approach to fashion. With it includes designers with a wide array of visions, from classical haute couture to developing fields such as anthropology, new textiles, high technology, architecture, art, and recycling. Atlas of Fashion Designers offers a comprehensive, fluid and diverse approach to the subject of contemporary fashion.

No other natural substance is as lovely and evocative of every human passion as the diamond. The origins of diamonds are rooted in a long journey stretching over aeons, buried deep in the earth. Diamond mines are found in some of the wildest and most remote places on earth: from the Arctic Circle, to tropical jungles, to semi-deserts
and the storm-racked coasts of Africa. Once unearthed, the hardest substance on earthis cut and transformed with painstaking precision into a multi-faceted gem stone. Diamonds is a fascinating record, of that journey.
