If you’ve ever wanted an insider’s view of how highly successful/creative people live, then look no further than The Selby. Created by Todd Selby, the project provides a unique look at these individuals in their personal spaces using his expertise as a portrait, interiors, and fashion photographer and illustrator. The site quickly gained a strong following after launching in 2008, and has since been turned into a series of books, each with a different theme and creative environment to explore.
The latest installment in the bestselling “Selby” series, Fashionable Selby features profiles of today’s most interesting designers, stylists, models, shoemakers, and more. The subjects include a mix of the avant-garde, the traditional, the must-haves, and the totally unexpected. Readers get the exciting chance to peek into the studios, workshops, and homes of some of the individual artists and will learn what inspires them, which materials they prefer to use, and all about their creative process. Have you ever wanted to see a piece from start (including initial inspiration) all the way to the finished product? Now you can! From the showroom of one of the Antwerp Six to the studios of Central St. Martins in London to a punk knitter in Brooklyn, Selby captures some of fashion’s biggest names, rising stars, and best-kept secrets.
