Radical Fashion

    I checked out an absurd amount of "coffee table" books today at the library because I'm oddly fascinated by photos of all sorts. One of the books I've been skimming is Radical Fashion, which is basically a collection of eleven world-class designers such as Azzedine Alaia, Comme des Garcons, and Vivienne Westwood. llustrations include striking catwalks images as well as exclusive photographs of pieces that apparently never made to to the runway. Anyway, I picked out a few of my favorite photos, enjoy!
