Book of the Week: "Fashion and Surrealism" by Assouline

To get into the spirit of Fashion Week, I decided to recommend one of my all time favorite books "Fashion and Surrealism."If any one really knows Surrealism then you know its presence in haute couture and in designs by John Galliano, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Lacroix and many others. This book focuses on the most important figures of the Surrealism movement: Salvador Dali, Joan Miro, Rene Magritte and Man Ray. Fashion is heavily influenced by Surrealism and long live the art of creativity.
