'In this crazy world of ours, most things don't make sense any more, but the wonderful thing about taking pictures of people wearing or not wearing clothes is that maybe you won't solve all the world's problems but you'll at least be giving back a seed of imagination to our garden of lost innocence. And it's fashion that can create a big fantasy life for all those who enter.' (Bruce Weber, in the publisher's description).

This is the first book on Bruce Weber to focus specifically on his work for fashion labels and magazines. Weber has never separated his fashion work from his other photography. His fashion photographs exhibit the same joy of life and the human body, just with exquisite clothes added. Over 300 fashion plates are reproduced here taken from his work for Vogue, Interview, Karl Lagerfeld, Calvin Klien, Per Lui, W, Versace, Commes des Garcons, Ralph Lauren and Abercrombie & Fitch. Weber's introduction is a stream of fashion world anecdotes, combined with 'Pictures from my Bulletin Board and Notes from my Daybooks'.
