Wraps, 8 by 9 3/4-inches, not paginated (60 pp.), with the title printed in gold on a large white rubber band that is wrapped around the first half of the book near the spine, and housed in the original fitted zip-lock bag. Fine. Scarce in this complete condition. Includes short essays by Fitzpatrick, Sylvia Chivaratanond, Frédéric Bonnet, Caroline Evans, Gerdi Esch, Gillion Carrara, and Li Edelkoort.

The purpose of the exhibit was to “examine the work of fashion designers who parallel artists in their conceptual approaches” at a time when “the creative endeavors of art and design are constantly being blurred.” “Skin Tight was conceived around three major categories – the architecture of the body, the sexualized body, and the deconstruction of the body – that reflect contemporary anxieties and suppositions related both to the body itself and the emotional resonances connected to it." (eph) First Edition.
