Reviews

Advance Praise for Hijacking the Runway

"It was just a matter of time before celebrities--with their delusions of grandeur and omnipotence--might attempt to conquer the world of fashion. Hijacking the Runway shows who's making it, who's faking it and why we're all along for the ride. Teri Agins delivers a wicked combo: journalism that's a smashing, fun read."
--Simon Doonan, author of The Asylum and Creative Ambassador Barneys New York "Hijacking the Runway is rich, gossipy and rewarding in its insights about the romp of celebrities through fashion. A brilliant reporter, Teri Agins documents the clout of Jessica Simpson and the magical yearning of Kanye West, amid other vivid portraits in a story waiting to be told. Agins gets the scoop."
--Cathy Horyn, former New York Times fashion critic "You can always trust that Teri Agins will deliver all the heretofore unknown, deep-dish on the inside workings of the fashion industry. Hijacking the Runway reads as an intimate conversation with one of fashion's key insiders and is delivered in a voice as quick, sharp and knowledgeable as its author."
--Tracy Reese, designer Praise for THE END OF FASHION Teri Agins is one of the most influential and well-respected reporters in the industry of fashion and all its facets. THE END OF FASHION is a watershed book which has pioneered a new realm of what fashion means to people. This is a landmark book which reveals the complexities inside fashion in an original and entertaining way. -- Andre Leon Talley, editor-at-large, Vogue THE END OF FASHION rips into the seamy underbelly of a world where marketing is king, and often the emporer has no clothes. -- Vanity Fair A fascinating read for anyone who lives the industry, its players, or clothing itself. -- The Boston Globe Agins has a gift for bringing fashion to life...It may indeed be the end of fashion, but Agins makes it an entertaining ride. -- Newsweek Fast reading and surgically precise. The hottest business book at the start of the millennium. THE END OF FASHION should be required reading for everyone in our industry. -- Bud Konheim, CEO, Nicole Miller It ought to be required reading for people who think they might like to be clothing designers. -- New York Times No other writer has the combined wit, style, sources, and fashion industry savvy to match the Wall Street Journal's Teri Agins, and it's all on display in THE END OF FASHION. The depth of reporting makes this essential reading not just for "fashionistas," but anyone interested in how business really works--or fails--in this dizzying world of art, culture, entertainment, and finance. -- James B. Stewart, author of DEN OF THIEVES and BLOOD SPORT Will have old-school fashionistas weeping into their Ferragamo scarves. -- Entertainment Weekly
