Visionaire Issue #18 published in 1996. Visionaire is a multi-format album of fashion and art produced in exclusive numbered limited editions. Since its inception in the Spring of 1991, Visionaire has offered a forum for works by both famous and emerging artists from around the world as well as personalities, fashion designers, art directors and image-makers. Published 3 times a year, Visionaire features a different theme and format with each issue. Artists work in collaboration with Visionaire to produce interpretations on a theme, and are given unparalleled freedom to push Visionaire's original formats.


Every issue of Visionaire is, to some degree, about fashion, but Issue 18, was the first all-out Fashion Special. Forty-four artists, photographers, and image-makers were asked to give their personal interpretation of clothing selected from the collections of forty-five of the world's most innovative and influential fashion designers. Highlights of the issue included Nan Goldin's collaboration with Helmut Lang, Jurgen Teller shooting Hussein Chalayan, Terry Richardson's take on John Bartlett, and Craig McDean's nine-page life-size foldout featuring Comme des Garcons. But the real surprise was the packaging: a deluxe monogrammed portfolio designed and produced specially for Visionaire by Louis Vuitton. People went wild. Some couldn't believe that the case was real. By the time the launch party was thrown at Mr. Chow in New York City some three weeks after the issue appeared, all 2,500 copies had sold out. It is among the most rare and sought-after back issues.


Artists included: Nan Goldin, Mario Testino, Ruven Afanador, Steven Klein, Nathaniel Goldberg, Adam Pollina, Donald Milne, Miles Aldridge, John Searisbrick, Ruben Toledo, Larry Fink, Carter Smith, Hiroshi Tanabe, Satoshi Saikusa, Jean-Paul Goude, Juergen Teller, Ellen Von Unwerth, Van Lamsweerde Matadin, Jerome Albertini, Dietmar, Jack Pierson, Richard Edwards, Joshua Jordan, Hiromix, Drew Jarrett, Alexi Tan, Arthur Elgort, Stephane Sednaoui, Chistophe Rihet, Martine Houghton, Enrique Badulescu, Masha Calloway, Viktor and Rolf, Marcelo Krasilcic, Luis Sanchis, Francesca Sorrenti, Jamil GS, Richard Martin, Terry Richardson, Craig McDean M/M.
