“There was nothing that could’ve prepared me for what we were undertaking,” admitted Amanda Sinatra before showcasing her new book to the spectators on hand. “There’s no way; it was so massive. I knew what we had, but when you add to it all the other archives and photography estates that said they would contribute and any other outside licensing you had to do – you can’t prepare for the quantity. I have to figure that outside of political figures he has to be one of the most photographed people from that era.”

 Saks Celebrates Sinatra at 100

Featuring myriad selfies before “selfies” was a thing, baby pictures, dozens of iconic style images, family moments and, naturally, scenes from life on the stage, Sinatra is truly a life in pictures. “The toughest part, I should say, was preparing for the editing process,” said Amanda Sinatra. “We have enough for a Volume Two. We may have to twist some arms and poke a few people to get that one done.” Fingers crossed!

Though, this coup is not the final step for Taylor. “It was such an honor to be nominated by The Woolmark Company and to be chosen to represent the US for the women’s designer challenge,” Taylor admitted. “To be announced as the winner by Francisco Costa is a dream. I’m thrilled and so looking forward to February and meeting the global finalists.” Taylor takes home a grand prize of AU$50,000 as the womenswear finalist for the US, but come Februrary, who knows, perhaps she’ll take the grand AU$100,000 prize with her back to the states.
