‘This book charts my relationship with some of the most talented people in fashion throughout my career. It makes me very proud to see gathered together all the great designers and houses I’ve worked with over the years. Looking through my personal archives has been a real trip down memory lane and it is the fashion that brings back moments and memories of the last twenty-five years.’
Kylie/Fashion is the official book celebrating twenty-five years since Kylie burst onto the music scene with ‘Locomotion’ and ‘I Should Be So Lucky’.
‘Crammed with high fashion images shot by elite photographers … a celebration of an international treasure, a woman loved for both her body of work and working her body’ – Esquire

From the very beginning, the fashion she has worn has been key to Kylie’s persona and performances. Her status as style icon is unassailable. This dazzling book celebrates her numerous and groundbreaking collaborations with the world’s great fashion designers.
Produced by Kylie, and drawing on her personal archives, it showcases Kylie at all her key fashion moments, whether as ingénue in gold hot pants for ‘Light Years’, geisha/manga super-heroine in her ‘X’ era, or Grecian winged messenger for ‘Aphrodite’.
Curated by William Baker, Kylie’s acclaimed creative director, and introduced by Jean Paul Gaultier, the book also features specially written texts by some of the most important designers and stylists Kylie has worked with throughout her career, including Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Christian Louboutin, Julien Macdonald, Stella McCartney, Laudomia Pucci, make-up artist Kabuki and photographer Stéphane Sednaoui. Kylie herself supplies additional commentary and an afterword.
Packed with iconic images as well as the very best rare and unseen archival photography, video stills, fashion sketches and ephemera, Kylie/Fashion is a collector’s item for fashionistas and fans worldwide, and a tribute to one of the most inspirational style icons of our time.
