"In the following months, we met 15 designers, discussed their work, made them fill out questionnaires, interviewed them on video; visited their homes, factories, offices, shops and studios; emailed, faxed, phoneconferenced, fedexed and started to call them by their first names. We asked them to tell stories, to fill boxes with things from their world, to take us behind the scenes, further than glossy pages, photoshoots, runways, clothes racks, and to show something beyond spring-summer and autumn-winter.
