Today, weed is en vogue and has evolved into a good-looking business. High on Design showcases the new brands, designs and creators behind this revolution. While cannabis is a recreational drug still strongly associated with Western subculture, it has recently become a huge industry. Over the past few years, consuming the herb and using its derivatives have become legal in several countries, and a wave of entrepreneurs has come through, looking to generate and bank on a new generation of consumers. Through insightful texts, High on Design reflects on the novel aesthetics, people, and trends of contemporary cannabis culture, and provides a wider view of the phenomenon. Addiction, crime, science, the marketing of weed as a booster of creativity and a medical aid, and the use of hemp in clothing are all considered.

Fifty major fashion designers are profiled in this book with fullcolor spreads that showcase their most memorable creations. Red carpet regulars such as Armani, Prada, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana are included, as well as the classic clothiers Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfield, and Oscar de la Renta. While some of these designers have designed for the masses--Ralph Lauren and Diane von Furstenberg--others prefer the avant-garde over function; Vivienne Westwood, for instance. Readers will learn how the early 20th-century designers such as Coco Chanel and André Courrèges made fashion history, and discover who's making it now: Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford, to name a few. A celebration of diversity and innovation and an essential handbook to a century of fashion, this exciting and informative look into the world of style will delight readers of every taste and age.
