Following a foreword by Valerie Steele and an introduction by Harold Koda, the book includes more than 58 interviews - all with a photograph of the subject.The book also features numerous special photo albums put together specifically for the book. They include an album of images by the renowned fashion photographer Scavullo, an album by photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and an album on the recently deceased and highly revered fashion stylist Isabella Blow, among others.
