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. Sprouse has launched collections coveted by women and men and celebrated as much Uptown as Downtown for their brilliant attitude. We see the trajectory of the designer's career as it developed in these works displayed. At its height, Stephen's 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.
