An incredibly natural vision...
Iain R Webb's POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE OF THE CATWALK is a personal photographic portfolio spanning three decades that documents the glittering brouhaha surrounding the ready-to-wear and haute couture fashion collections in New York, London, Milan and Paris.

—— A designer roll call including John Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Anna Sui, Valentino, Donatella Versace, Oscar de la Renta, Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen.

—— Supermodels and style icons including Linda Evangelista, Catherine Deneuve, Isabella Blow, Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodianova, Erin O'Connor, Kate Moss, Anna Piaggi, Anna Wintour, Shalom Harlow and Björk.

—— Celebrity front row faces including Gwyneth Paltrow, Grace Jones, George Michael, Kate Winslet, Sean Combs, Liz Hurley, Tilda Swinton, Paris Hilton, Bernadette Peters, Nick Cave, Ivana Trump, Roman Polanski and RuPaul.

"At every fashion event there is the invited audience, and then there are the privileged few, whose access transcends the velvet ropes and vip rooms. For longer than I can remember, Iain R Webb was one of the few who was invited everywhere and had the presence of mind to take pictures of what was happening. There is no better guide to fashion's inner sanctum. This book is the next best thing to actually being there."
—— Paula Reed, style director, Grazia

"Iain R Webb's book is an incredibly natural vision of the impossibly unnatural world of fashion. A truly important vision from the inside of the most creative of industries. It certainly is an amazing testament to some of the most important fashion moments from the last 25 years."
—— Nick Knight, photographer
