The interior and exterior design decisions of this large-format catalogare based upon a formal and contextual inversion of the body bag. Morespecifically, my intentions were captured throughout the pacing of thebook; first providing a historical background, then through thedocumentation of "Shaping the Shift" where we see Jackie's immediateinfluence on culture through 1962-1964, and to conclude, a transitioninto contemporary fashion essays, theories, symbolic metaphors, andside-by-side positioned photographs.
