Elvis Fashion: From Memphis to Vegas - Julie Mundy in association with Graceland
'Sure, he's the King of Rock and Roll, but he could just as well be the King of Rock and Roll Style. It was Elvis, after all, who defined the two extremes of rock style. Back in the mid-50s, he laid the blueprint for the rock and roller as rebel—the black pants, the jacket, the hair, the snarl. It's an image that has survived for nearly five decades. Similarly, the after-image Elvis created in the latter half of his career, with his evermore-grand jumpsuits, continues to be a source of inspiration.'

 James Henke Vice President of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
Elvis Fashion is the first book to document Elvis' wardrobe. FiaaturIng archival and newly commissioned photography, in addition to rare documents and sketches, it offers an unprecedented look inside Graceland's collection, taking us from the wild outfits of America's best loved teen idol to the outrageous stagewear of the world's first rock and roll superstar.

At a very young age Elvis began to turn up his collars and spend hours on his hair and, as soon as he could afford to, made his first investments in the fine tailoring of the Lansky Brothers in Memphis. As teen-idol in the 1950s, he turned to the flamboyant Nudie Cohn and, as budding star of the silver screen, to Rat Pack designer Sy Devore. In the meantime, Elvis also cultivated his own style at home, whether it was horseback riding gear for his friends, an 'EPE' foot-ball uniform, personalized karate gis, or putting his TCB (Taking Care of Business) logo on everything from sunglasses and jewelry, to the wall of his tele-vision room and the tail of his plane. When he made his retum to the stage, on Be '68 Spacial, Elvis went to Bill Belew who, among many elaborate costumes—tasseled, beaded, and embroidered with flames. dragons, and tigers—also created his most enduring image: the legendary white jumpsuit.

From primping and preening to donning the most awe-inspiring stagewear in rock and roll history, Elvis Fashion takes you on a fabulous journey with the undisputed King of Rock and Roll Style.

Artist description "Presley, Elvis"

Elvis Aaron Presley - The King of Rock'n'Roll

(January 8, 1935, Tupelo, MS – August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN) 
Elvis Presley (full name Elvis Aaron Presley) is the most outstanding personality in showbiz ever since, and the most popular entertainer the world has ever seen! His musical influence within music history and its following generations of musicians is still unbroken. His huge 'Blast-Off' in the mid-1950s, the rising star from a simply called 'Hillbilly Cat' (at Sun Records) to a lascivious Rock'n'Roll singer with charisma, a male sex symbol (then at RCA Victor) soon popularized him as "The King of Rock'n'Roll" or simply "The King".
His first cut within his tremendous career happened between October 1958 and March 1960 while Elvis was on duty with the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. It was there in 1959 when he met his later wife Priscilla Beaulieu at age 14. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas (divorce in 1973). Elvis evolved into an all-around entertainer after his Army service and started starring in Hollywood films. 33 movies in total, including the two concert documentaries 'That's The Way It Is' and 'On Tour'. He again shook the world with his 1968 NBC Comeback TV Special after his movie period without any stage appearances.
This TV special included the first ever unplugged session presented together with musicians from the early days such as Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. 1973 saw THE TV mega event at all: Elvis Presley, 'Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite'! Elvis' Honolulu appearance, the first time that a show was broadcasted worldwide via satellite! He was ahead of his time! Elvis Presley had 148 US single chart hits, including some so-called double-sider when A- and B-side both hit the charts like his 1956 smash 'Don't Be Cruel b/w Hound Dog', plus 15 EP hits between 1956 and 1977. Two billion of sold media and sound carriers by Elvis Presley is the estimated number! He received 14 Grammy nominations until 1978 and three Grammy for his Gospel interpretations. Elvis was the youngest artist when honored with the Bing Crosby Award (Lifetime Achivement Award) in 1971.
He is presented in 5 Halls of Fame (Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Blues and Gospel). Six of his song interpretations are collected in the Grammy Hall of Fame. On top of it all Elvis Presley got the most gold and platinum records and a Diamond-Award. He definetly is the 'Best selling solo artist in U.S. History' (RIAA – Record Industry Association of America)!
