In Gods and Kings Dana Thomas, author of Deluxe, tells the story of how John Galliano and Alexander McQueen changed the face of fashion

In the first decade of the 21st century the fashion world was dominated by two different but equally successful and turbulent figures. Within twelve months, Alexander McQueen had committed suicide, and John Galliano had professionally imploded. Who was to blame? And how was fashion changed by their rise and fall? Spanning the 80s, 90s and noughties, Gods and Kings tells the story of these two charismatic figures and times of great change in the world of fashion, from London's raucous art and club scene to the old-world glamour of Parisian couture, and reveals the machinations of this notoriously secretive industry.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A page-turning tale of fashion's highest flyers * i-D *
Fascinating... a well-told story of poetry, art and angst * Tatler *
A vivid, arresting account * Evening Standard *
More than a delicious read * InStyle *
Riveting... [Dana Thomas] is terrific at describing the shock value of their shows * Mail on Sunday *
Thomas has spoken to more than 100 fashion insiders to put together a portrait of an era dominated, in her account, by these two uncontrollable and wild talents... Thomas's narrative flits deftly between the "parallel professional journeys" of two men with a similar rebellious streak * Telegraph *
Conjures up the particular madness of the fashion treadmill, with its constant quest for newness and the inevitability that a triumph would be followed by a fall * New Statesman *
Occasionally titillating and ultimately poignant * T, The New York Times Style Magazine *
