Well, by now I should be posting more photos from Boston, a city which I explore part by part daily, but you see I decided on enrolling in the current Blogging 101 course by WordPress.com and I’m playing along. Today’s task asked that we make the daily prompt personal, so I’m sharing with you 5 fashion related books (non fiction) that I enjoyed and I believe worth being added to your reading list!
This book was a gift and though I’m pretty sure the person who got it for me based his choice on my love for fashion, he did pick a really interesting book. “At the heart of this book is a series of in-depth interviews with famous designers—the Fashion Makers—unveiling the process that creates an appealing design, collection, and brand.“
Get this book and you’ll remember me! It’s a must read one!
I bought this book 10 years ago (of course the version I linked is a more updated one) before even taking fashion design courses (yeap, also did that as well) and I learned so much about inspiration, creating mood boards (my favorite) the process of design and so many more. Of course I never applied any of these in real life, except for creating boards and drawing whenever I saw fit!
This is what I call the “insider” book. It follows the life of an anonymous British designer for 6 months and we get to see what it’s really like! Interesting read for anyone pursuing a fashion designer career!
An easy to use book that will help with you with styling up for any occasion! Oh yes, back in the day the girls from Who What Wear published a couple of books as well!
5) Tom Ford
Well, this is different than the rest, as it’s more of a coffee table book than reading material. Yet is a purchase I never regretted. I like this book so much, not only for the visual inspiration from Ford’s time at Gucci, but also for his ideas and way of thinking.
Have you read any of these? Which are your favorite fashion news?
