Format: Hardcover
This is a really nice fashion forward book about Anna Sui, the book takes no time getting into the shows and designs. The embossed/foiled cover design show the quality control that went into the book's design. Sometimes with other fashion books they use a lot of fluff to fill a book. Not the case with this book, beautiful pictures of various runway outfits and themes for each show (inspiration is noted as well). The pictures are exceptional, several 2 page promotional ads and inspiration boards are shown for a few pages. Anna Sui is a vivid and imaginative designer, anyone who likes color, detail, and unique design will love this entertaining and well thought out book.

Format: Hardcover
Anna Sui's rock and roll looks fostered a new era in fashion and her shows created a new kind of styling and beauty. Any who follow fashion trends are likely to know her name - and ANNA SUI here packs in over 400 color images shot by photographers to accompany a season-by-season analysis of her fashion designs. The result is a lovely chronological collection of her seasonal contributions - and a 'must' for any serious fashion history library.

This is a must have for any fashion collector, fan of Ms. Sui's work, and students! The introduction by Meisel is amazing (and rare as he rarely does any interviews), the photography is inspiring, and the runway photos have been carefully edited so that you really get a great sense of what each collection was about. A genius book on a genius subject.

Format: Kindle Edition
I borrowed this book through a library e-book program. I usually like Kindle offerings, but this kind of book is the argument for paper. The images on the Kindle are small, muddy, black and white and indistinct -- nothing like the images in the "Look Inside" preview. From what I've read so far, the text is okay; it's seems to be a basic collection-by-collection description of Anna Sui's inspirations. But it's almost worthless without excellent images.
