London now ranks alongside Paris, New York and Milan as a global fashion capital, and it has produced such outstanding designers as John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan and Stella McCartney. Style City tells, for the first time, the story of how that came about, describing how fashion developed in Britain from the early 1970s, when designer fashion scarcely existed, to the present day. The story is told largely through interviews with the designers and opinion-shapers of the time, among them Paul Smith, Philip Treacy, Jasper Conran, Bruce Oldfield, Betty Jackson, Wendy Dagworthy and Antonio Berardi. Ravishingly illustrated, the book includes photographs by David Bailey, Barry Lategan, Chris Moore and other leading fashion photographers, as well as many from the designers' own archives.
