Over 30 years ago, a stylist is someone invisible in the image-making process. Today, stylists are intrinsic in creating a vision with photographers and styling a sought-after profession. In a gorgeous book edited by Katie Baron, the best of the best are brought together in one tightly edited tome.

The names featured are Christiane Arp, Camille Bidault-Waddington, Judy Blame, David Bradshaw, Francesca Burns, Marie Chaix, Leith Clark, Anna Dello Russo, Markus Ebner, Katy England, Edward Enninful, Nicola Formichetti, Simon Foxton, Katie Grand, Jacob K, Alister Mackie, Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, Marie-Amelie Sauve, Venetia Scott, Katie Shillingford, Tabitha Simmons, Francesco Sourigues, Robbie Spencer, Melanie Ward and Patti Wilson.

The photographer, Nick Knight, wrote in his foreword,

What is it that makes a great – the greatest – stylist? It is imagination, a love and an understanding of fashion and a desire to see things that are not there. Like an amazing film, a great stylist will open your eyes to a world you had not – or could not possibly have – imagined. In the business of image-making there is nothing more exciting.
