A Hilarious Visual Banquet
"What kind of neurotic exhibitionist psychopathology made me choose a career cavorting around arranging merchandise and props in full view of the rest of humanity?" asks Simon Doonan, creative director of the fashion temple Barneys New York and the genius provocateur behind the most anticipated, talked-about and controversial window displays in the world. His answer lies in CONFESSIONS OF A WINDOW DRESSER, Doonan's hilarious dishing discussion of life behind the window pane and the first ever popular exploration of window dressing and its role in fashion retailing. With a laugh-out-loud text and more than 250 full color images of Doonan's most famous and infamous tableaux, CONFESSIONS OF A WINDOW DRESSER will intrigue not only the most dedicated fashion groupies but anyone interested in design,image and style.

Summary: The buzz created by the hardcover of this "engaging, tart, saucy, and very frank memoir" (Liz Smith) ran from a first serial in W to an "Absolut Doonan" ad to Hollywood film rights. For twenty years Simon Doonan, the creator of the hottest window displays in the world at Barney's New York, has collaborated with the biggest names in fashion and the most notorious names in art. Whether he's making fun of blondes, sending up Sigmund Freud, or creating caricatures of celebrities, his work has been fearless and entertaining kitsch. Confessions of a Window Dresser illustrates his work in glorious full-color photographs and wickedly witty commentary on the trends and people of the fashion and entertainment world. Here's a dazzling gift of glamour, laughter, and fashion history. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0141003626
