How to be a Tastemaker

The Origins of Style

A witty and elegantly curated lifestyle guide from the perspective of creative vanguards.

Available on May 31.

Bringing together the opinions, attitudes, and achievements of contemporary culture’s most influential icons, How to be a Tastemaker offers a glance into not only the work, but also the inner lives of individuals paving the way in their fields. Our hyper-connected society mocks conventional notions of taste, which is why Claudia Schiffer’s modelling advice or discovering Laila Gohar’s life-defining motto can have sizable cultural impacts.

What is good taste, after all, but having the honesty to announce your ways of thinking and feeling? Through in-depth profiles, How to be a Tastemaker opens up the world of industry-leaders to learn how they’ve made it to where they are—from major life-changing moments and big ideas, down to the books, playlists, and holiday destinations that have enriched their lives.
