Formats & editions


Interviews with the world’s leading fashion designers.

Interviews with the world’s leading fashion designers.

Where do designers find inspiration? How do they put a collection together? Can they stay on the cutting edge creatively and run a viable business at the same time?

In Fashion Speak, David Meagher talks to top Australian and international designers - the people whose vision shapes the way we dress today and what we'll be wearing next season. The designers talk about where they've come from, where they're headed, and their philosophy of design.

Gorgeously illustrated throughout with full-colour photographs from the catwalks of London, Paris, Milan, New York and Sydney. Fashion Speak features interviews with top Australian and international designers including: Marc Jacobs * Christopher Bailey (Burberry) * Sunjoo Moon * Ennio Capasa (Costume National) * Josh Goot * Adam Lippes * Philip Treacy * Karen Walker * Ozwald Boateng * Akira Isogawa * Liz and Neville Findlay (Zambesi) * Nicole and Michael Colovos (Helmut Lang) * Martin Grant * Hedi Slimane

Praise for Fashion Speak

“Fashion Speak is the most comprehensive and authoritative tome about the industry to come out of this country in a long time. This is because Meagher goes deeper into the fashion industry than hemlines and colours.”
