Today a label reading 'Made in Germany' denotes quality, durability and attention to detail. Although it wasn't always this way, the past decades have seen an emergence of high fashion coming out of Germany. Designers such as Jil Sander, Baldessarini and Karl Lagerfeld; photographers such as Peter Lindbergh, Ellen von Unwerth, and Armin Morbach; and models such as Claudia Schiffer and Heidi Klum have become world-famous icons. Other lesser-known but equally important players have made their mark backstage as internationally sought-after hair and makeup experts, stylists and journalists. In this striking collection of profiles, personal interviews and photographs, author Martina Rink has assembled a fascinating and comprehensive picture of the people who have helped establish Germany as a driving force in cutting edge fashion.
