Euphoria, the American television series that premiered on HBO in June 2019, is known for its bold, unflinching portrayal of contemporary teenage life, touching on issues such as drug abuse, mental health, sexuality and relationships.
The show has also been praised for its exceptional wardrobe choice. From Zendaya’s character Rue's edgy and grunge-inspired oversized hoodies and distressed jeans, Hunter Schafer’s character Jules' eclectic and experimental looks to Alexa Demie’s character Maddy's signature sharp winged eyeliner...admit it; we have all been taking notes for our next party outfit.
Euphoria‘s costume designer Heidi Bivens has teamed up with A24 to create a book that delves into the process behind picking out looks for the show.
“From the micro mini-skirts worn in the halls of Euphoria High to the maximalist theater of house party outfits, Euphoria Fashion is about more than just costumes — it’s a guide in understanding that clothes are the conduit,” Bivens explains.
‘Euphoria Fashion’ is a 272-page book that gives its readers an in-depth look into the popular rise of Euphoria culture and style, visualized and as told by world-famous fashion houses and designers like Coperni and Arianne Phillips.
