From his childhood in the 1930s, when he collected Hollywood fan mags and publicity photos, Andy Warhol was obsessed with glamour, style and fashion. After moving to New York in 1949 he soon made his mark in the world of advertising and commercial art, and when he turned to fine art in the 1960s, fashion and commercial imagery continued to pervade his work. This book illustrates the decisive impact of his work on fashion and glamour and how that involvement and the "Warhol Style" have powerfully influenced contemporary art. The book takes us on a grand tour of Warhol's passion for the swank and the chic: the publicity shots of Marilyn Monroe; his fashion drawings of the 1950s; photos of his department store window displays; the "silver factory" works of the 1960s that blurred the lines between avant-garde and popular culture; his explorations of gender identity; and "Interview" magazine and the downtown club scene - epicentres of style and trendsetting.
