This engaging book, told in his own words and illustrated with eye-popping photographs of his innovative designs, provides a candid, insider's view of the fashion world, seen through the eyes of one of its genuine icons. The first gallery to show Morris's work was New York's Sculpture to Wear, which offered one-of-a-kind jewelry by fine artists such as Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, and Man Ray. Today Morris's pieces are found not only at his own gallery in New York's SoHo, but also in the high-fashion collections of Donna Karan, for whom he created a signature look, and in jewelry stores throughout the United States. Robert Lee Morris is sure to appeal to jewelry lovers and fashion aficionados everywhere, and to have a powerful influence on the next generation of cutting-edge designers.
