Filled with a blend of in the past unpublished photographs of Legapi’s creations in addition to new images of Owens’ work, this stunning volume tells the story of the designer’s subversive sensibility. An essay by Andre Leon Talley and interviews with Patti Labelle, Paul Stanley, Valerie Legaspi, and Pat Cleveland offer a intimate glimpse into Legaspi’s world.
