About This Book
This lively volume celebrates the contributions to inventive fashionable living by the New York– based style innovator Opening Ceremony—a bible for the fashion-forward and culturally savvy alike.

Bringing together the best emerging American talent with international designers and historic brands, Opening Ceremony represents the best in fashion and has played a vital role in launching the careers of many young designers. Celebrating the company’s tenth anniversary, Opening Ceremony is a visually rich documentation of Leon and Lim’s diverse inspirations, collaborators, and creative community, including Ryan McGinley, Rodarte, and Alexander Wang. A celebratory look at New York’s quintessential style headquarters, this book will captivate and inspire readers from fashion, art, music, film, and beyond.
