Book Club#5: Fashion Germany – Kreative Stories Trends
Fashion author and former personal assistant to Isabelle Blow, Martina Rink launched her second coffee-table book: Fashion Germany. Kreative. Stories. Trends. This fashion book presents Germany’s increasingly important role in the world of fashion and tells the inside story of the designers, creative directors, stylists, and photographers, who have placed the country on the style map.
Today a label reading “Made in Germany” connotes quality, durability, and attention to detail. Although it wasn’t always this way, the past decades have seen an emergence of high fashion coming out of Germany. Designers such as Jil Sander, Bernhard Wilhelm, and Karl Lagerfeld; photographers such as Peter Lindbergh, Kristian Schuller and Armin Morbach; and models such as Claudia Schiffer and Heidi Klum have become world-famous icons.
Other lesser-known but equally important players have made their mark backstage as internationally sought-after hair and makeup experts, stylists and journalists. In this striking collection of profiles, personal interviews, and photographs, author Martina Rink has assembled a fascinating and comprehensive picture of the people who have helped establish Germany as a driving force in cutting edge fashion.
Martina Rink is the author of Isabella Blow, a book that has become essential reading for fashion enthusiasts. Once personal assistant to Isabella Blow, Rink has established herself as a fashion insider on both sides of the Atlantic.
Her written celebration and tribute to German fashion talent is for us a Must Read and a Must Have to collect.
