Following her rise to supermodel status in the 1990’s – the era that birthed the term – Naomi Campbell remains one of the most compelling figures in fashion. A new release from Taschen combines art and autobiography, exploring Campbell’s career, life story and legacy. Read on for the details:
Beyond the runway, models are lately catwalking across bookstore shelves. Last fall brought the successful debuts of Becoming by Cindy Crawford and Timeless Beauty by Christie Brinkley. Today, news of Naomi Campbell from Taschen makes for three recent top model page-turners, and thus, an official trend.
The two-volume set, edited by Josh Baker, includes a hardcover portfolio and a companion autobiography with additional photographs. Together, they track Campbell’s nearly 30-year career, from breaking barriers as the first black model to grace the covers of French Vogue and Time magazines, to acting as muse and spokesperson for many modern fashion designers.
Naomi Campbell will arrive at the Taschen Library at the Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas this February. The Collector’s Edition ($1,750), signed by Naomi herself, features artwork by Allen Jones. Consider it a fashionably late holiday gift for any fan.
