Runway Madness

"The unexpected runway moment, the candid dressing-room expression, the steely eyed scrutiny of the front-row denizens. Runway Madness is a personal invitation to New York's infamous Fashion Week. More than 100 arresting photographs by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Lucian Perkins-many never published until now-tell the behind-the-scenes story of this unparalleled fashion event. Perkins captures the models up-close and personal: Kate Moss without make-up, Naomi Campbell in curlers, and Shalom Harlow, Amber Valetta, Christy Turlington, and many others in high pomp as well as unguarded circumstance. Also exposed are the fashion editors and buyers, journalists, and stars whose high-visibility presence is essential. Quotes from fashion insiders provide a running commentary and captions by Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan explain each image. The beat, the lights, the cascade of beauty and color: this is not only a performance, but also a performance art. Long and lean like the runway itself, Runway Madness is the total high fashion experience.
Lucian Perkins received a Pulitzer Prize in photography in 1995 and World Press Photo of the Year in 1996. A staff photographer for the Washington Post, he has covered the New York fashion shows for more than a decade. He lives in Washington, DC.
Robin Givhan is the fashion writer for the Washington Post and a three-time winner of the Atrium Award for fashion reporting." Chronicle Books
