There’s a reason Fern Mallis’ live interview series always sells out — and it’s only in part because her interviewees are some of fashion’s biggest names. Mallis, a driving force behind NY Fashion Week, also has a gift for getting beneath designers’ public personas.
Fashion Lives: Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis is a compilation of 19 of Fern’s celebrated interviews — plus never-before-seen photographs of fashion luminaries growing up and more iconic images documenting their public lives and careers. Some of the book’s engrossing interviews are with Tom Ford, Andre Leon Talley, Oscar de la Renta, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and Diane von Furstenberg. rizzoliusa.com
