Anna Sui by Andrew Bolton


I recently finished reading a book on Anna Sui circling around her career take off through the last 30 years. The book itself was basically a collection of reviews on her shows from the past two decades, and focused on her inspiration for each collection. Overall it was enjoyable but not very informative on the industry as a whole. If your interested in design, or just Anna Sui and her brand itself, I would recommend it.
You may know Andrew Bolton as the the man in charge of the Met's Costume Institute exhibits each year which Vogue puts on the annual Costume Institute Gala for. He is literally a genius, he manages to fit the entire essence of Anna's brand into a single coffee table book. The book had lots of interesting quotes, I'll share the ones I took down.
"To be 'mod' was to be cosmopolitan."
"In a true democracy everyone can be upper class and live in connecticut." - Lisa Birnback
"Sui often includes references to he favorite works of art in her collections... akin to keeping a scrapbook."
"We can to New York to meet our heros. We dressed like then, talked like them, lived like them. For a few dollars, anyone could walk into a thrift store and come out looking like movie stars."
