This books is drawn from a large archive of design work (comprised of 1500 individual items that include some 600 drawings, colour Xeroxes, swatch references and inspirational material) by Stephen Sprouse that spans the years of 1974 to the late 1980's.
Sprouse's meteoric rise to become America's daring darling of the Fashion World is a story still being processed. The works in the book focus on a period reflective of Sprouse's participation with and connection to the glamorous, high profile Uptown studios of Bill Blass and Halston and his profound embrace of the Downtown vibe of the East Village and the Bowery. It is here where he would ultimately create his most iconic design work surrounded by a hotbed of furious creativity, where art/fashion/music thrived as interdisciplinary talents. Stephen Sprouse would embody this revolutionary fusion like no other.
At its height, his work would jump off the pages of every conceivable Fashion magazine. His designs would embed themselves into the creative banks of the Fashion Industry and continue to influence that community to this day.
