"In other news, the designer has a book coming out in October, a retrospective with Rizzoli spanning her 20 years of work. “I focus a lot on the early years, which is not documented that much anywhere," she said. "Also because the early years informed my design process and that’s not online, so it felt important to have that set in stone somewhere.”
—The Hollywood Reporter
"A beautiful retrospective on the Chilean designer, who has dressed such fashion VIPs as former First Lady Michelle Obama and Tilda Swinton"
"If you want to really want to know what the book is about then you must be interested in knowing this designer's fundamentals: "'Let the fabric dictate the drape, let the fabric dictate the shape, no shoulder seam, no side seams, no darts, no collars, seam displacement, off kilter, straight line against curve, line displacement and no buttons.' "
—New York Journal of Books
"The tome, which features photography by Cornejo’s husband, Mark Borthwick, has a sketch-and-scrapbook feel: Myriad drawings—some as basic as shapes overwritten with the words tube, circle, and triangle—are printed next to images of two decades’ worth of Cornejo’s cerebrally pragmatic clothes. "
