Description: "What kind of neurotic exhibitionist, psychopathology made me choose a career cavorting around arranging merchandise and props in full view of the rest of humanity?" asks author Simon Doonan in "Confessions of a Window Dresser", Doonan's hilarious, dishing discussion of life behind the window pane. His answer lies in the first ever popular exploration of window dressing and its role in fashion marketing. As the creative genius behind the most anticipated, talked-about and controversial window displays in the world at the fashion temple Barneys, Simon Doonan has been involved in the cutting edge of fashion, design, and pop culture for twenty years. Whether making fun of blondes, sending up Sigmund Freud in "Neurotic Yule", or creating caricatures of celebrities such as Demi Moore ("ended up looking like Buddy Hackett"), Sandra Bernhard ("turned out like Ruth Buzzi") or Dan Quayle (paired with a giant Mr. Potato Head in a dunce cap), Doonan's windows have been fearless, entertaining kitsch.

In "Confessions of a Window Dresser" Doonan brings together in word and image, his sensational story and wickedly witty commentary on the hottest fashion trends and people of the last twenty years. With his inimitable British sense of humor (Monty Python comes to mind), Doonan shares his creative inspirations, insights on his collaborations with fashion greats (Lagerfeld, Lacroix, Armani, Vreeland) and what it's like to work with some of today's most notorious artists (Maplethorpe, Rauschenberg) in a text that will be a revelation to even the most dedicated followers of the fashion world. With glorious full color photographs of all his most infamous "tableux of contemporary life", "Confessions of aWindow Dresser" is the ultimate celebration and send up of life in fashion.
