Project Details

Studio One Eighty Nine co-founders Abrima Erwiah and Rosario Dawson have composed the preface for award-winning photographer Daniele Tamagni’s Global Style Battles and Fashion Tribes books. Tamagni has tracked down and recorded some of the most surprising and colorful international fashion subcultures. Through documentary shots and staged portraiture, he has captured heavy metal rockers in Botswana, hipsters in Johannesburg, dandies in the Congo, female wrestlers in Bolivia, “bling bling” youth in Cuba, punks in Burma, and models in Senegal.

Often marginalized on the fringes of their own societies and looking to stand out, these people fight back and express their creativity and joy through personal style. Alongside the seven subcultures featured are essays by leading experts in fashion, art, anthropology, and sociology that explore all facets of style. Both books offer a broad view of world dress and show the power of clothing.
