New Fashion Book: Culture to Catwalk

A&C Black to publish Culture to Catwalk, new fashion book by Kristin Knox

A unique perspective on global fashion over the decades, Culture to Catwalk examines Western fashion’s long-standing love affair with ethnic influence by looking at both traditional clothing and contemporary fashion from 38 countries. From the founders of ready-to-wear such as Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior to the reigning kings of the contemporary catwalk, there is hardly a designer who cannot claim to have at one point been inspired by traditional clothing and cultures from around the world. And as fashion ushers in a new era of digital media with blogs and street style providing new access and insights into pockets of fashion cultures around the globe, the influence of these fashion cultures—and sub-cultures— on the catwalk is stronger than ever.

 Featuring over 300 Getty images, Culture to Catwalk is the ideal guide to global fashion. Kristin Knox is the professional blogger behind cult fashion website, “The Clothes Whisperer.” Based in London, she also works as a fashion journalist and has contributed content to the FT Weekend and InStyle UK, among others. With a masters in Classical Literature from Oxford University, this New Yorker turned Londoner also works as a consultant for both major British and international brands. She is also the author of the best selling, Alexander McQueen: Genius of a Generation.
