If you’ve been plugged into the fashion world even in just a small way, then you have heard the name Simon Doonan. This man created magic in the windows of Barneys New York for years, still serves as the store’s creative ambassador, has appeared on America’s Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, and many talk shows and has written several other books about fashion such as Whacky Chicks. The witty, often over-the-top Brit is back with a new book The Asylum: a collage of couture reminiscences…and hysteria. This is a laugh out loud inside look at some of fashion’s more insane moments. After all, people who obsess over hem lengths and shoe heel heights must be a little wacky, so I guess that makes us a little wacky too!
