"Lois Lammerhuber, a veritable alchemist of photography, lets you feel the passion, single-mindedness and skill at work in the costume workshops, from the process itself to the finished piece. He illustrates Annette Beaufaÿs' universe as one of the real cabinets of wonder for today" Der Standard
Glamour opens up a magical world of transformations, full of grace and beauty and fairy-tale elegance, in the costume workshops of ART FOR ART in Vienna. Annette Beaufaÿs has headed the workshops for the past 20 years and allowed photographer Lois Lammerhuber into this dream factory. He attended the manifold minute processing steps necessary to create a work of art fit for the stage, made from original designs by highly skilled and experienced tailors, milliners, shoemakers and painters. The book also shows how some of the world's greatest opera stars, like Edita Gruberova, are trying on their costumes with a sense of curiosity, or how some of the most talented costume designers, like Sue Blane - who created the costumes for the Rocky Horror Picture Show - develop their designs with passion and skill.
