The book features three decades of fashion brought together in
one Collection, worn as originally intended by the Collector
herself, and developed over five years by photographer Frederic
Aranda. Why is it electric? It is the story of how the Collector,
Christine Suppes, blazed an indelible trail into online fashion
editorial in the 90s whilst developing a unique collection in the
heart of Silicon Valley. Electric Fashion is essential viewing,
punctuated with academic perspective, comprehensive technical
references, and archival text from the collection’s accompanying
website, fashionlines.com. This timeless tome boasts a double
vantage point; on the one hand, each garment is photographed in
a studio setting to enhance critical academic understanding, whilst
on the other, worn by the collector herself at locations around the
world to depict the garments as they were originally intended to
be worn. The finished product is a 360 degree view of fashion,
from historical, cultural, and
