Synopsis

Cutting-edge designs from 30 of the top fashion studios working in steampunk

The global movement that is steampunk has taken the worlds of art, sculpture, jewelry, and now fashion by storm. The designers in this collection represent the most innovative steampunk designers working today, and they come from Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, London, Tokyo, Berlin, Barcelona, Paris, Mosow, Rio, and more. Their offerings range from stunning haute couture to remarkable club looks and punky streetwear. Fantastic images of heavenly and astounding creations are at the core of this book, but it also features detailed biographies of the studios, their sources of inspiration, and their views on the movement. This is an essential resource for all fashion students and everyone on the scene, or for those simply looking for inspiration on how to dress.
