Visionaire Publishing, LLC was co-founded by Stephen Gan, Cecilia Dean, and James Kaliardos. 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, image-makers and other leaders in contemporary culture. This creative freedom has allowed Visionaire to break down the boundaries between creative cultures to form a new community devoted to visual expression.
Visionaire features a different theme and format with each new issue. Chosen artists work in collaboration with Visionaire to produce their personal interpretations on the dictated subject, and are given unparalleled freedom to push Visionaire's origional formats.
"Visionaire defies easy explanation... luminaries eagerly participate."
- The New York Times
"Visionaire is a creative playground... a cabinet of irresistable curiosities. A daring iconoclast dressed to thrill."
- The New Yorker
"Intricate, three-dimension pages, created by big names in fashion and art, leap from the pages with a surprise on every turn.”
"...Continually morphs and redefines itself..."
"Fashions rise and fashions set, but Visionaire continues to shine with its unperturbed new visions, influenced by nobody, influencing them all."
- Karl Lagerfeld
"Visionaire is a tribute to the vision of many... it has allowed hundreds of artists a place to let images and ideas breathe a different air. That it has been a huge success has confused some and, of course, irritated others, but it is impossible to go out on a limb without annoying somebody, as those who do know very well."
- Mario Testino
"The alternative small run publication has often dazzled, always relentlessly focused on changing the way we look at the printed page. Looking haughtily over its shoulder to fleur's flair, Visionaire rolls up its sleeves, cups its hands to its mouth, flexes it muscles... Oh, I could go on all day... And whispers, "The eyes have it."
- David Bowie
