Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
At last, a revolutionary solution to the age-old quandary of too many clothes but "nothing to wear!" Whether dressing for a date or an important work presentation, every day millions of women throw open their closets, stare blankly into the abyss, and mutter, "I’ve got nothing to wear!" despite the countless dollars they spend on clothes and accessories. At once simple and unique, Nothing to Wear? reveals a stylish cure for the common closet, based on the five-step process that has made Visual Therapy™ a hit for more than ten years with fashion editors and clients alike.

Book Description
Introduction MY MOTHER WAS FORTY the day the photographer came to our house on Cherry Court and lined us kids up behind my parents, who were sitting shoulder to shoulder on the piano bench. I’ve never forgotten how she looked. She was in her mint-green knit suit. Her brooch and earrings were the same gold tone as the buttons on her closed jacket. Her soft strawberry-blond hair was in tamed curls framing her bespectacled, confident face. I was a teenager looking through a different lens that day, but what I captured was just as permanent an image as the portrait that hung for years on our dining room wall. While the photographer was setting up his tripod, I was looking into the future. In that moment, watching my mom settle onto the piano bench, I saw how profound it was to be a woman at forty. Forty meant...

The Pocket Stylist: Behind-the-Scenes Expertise from a Fashion Pro on Creating Your Own Look
Kendall Farr

February 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
With its text-heavy layout and somewhat confusing "body type" divisions, this fashion guidebook is somewhat more complicated than many of the other style books on the market. Dedicated readers, however, will learn a lot from Farr, a former fashion editor who's written for InStyle, People, Harper's Bazaar and other publications. Drawing upon her years of experience as a personal stylist, Farr teaches readers what to look for and what to avoid when clothes shopping, how to evaluate their wardrobes and why certain heel heights and shapes work better for different body types. She also gives tips on finding a good tailor, measuring bra size, wearing makeup and accessorizing. Farr is funny, down to earth and savvy, and her guide exudes authority and experience. Although involved, it is comprehensive and...

The Suit

June 2006
Hardcover

Book Description

"Clothes make the man."

Mark Twain never worked in today's fast-paced workplace, but his observation has never been keener: clothes do make the man. With The Suit, Nicholas Antongiavanni provides a masterly manual on what it takes to succeed: advice on how to dress with style, flair, and an eye toward gaining power. That's because "business casual" has proved itself a one-way ticket to a lifetime in the corporate dungeon. But if you apply the sartorial advice proffered in The Suit to your clothes, you will project elegance, bravado, and success.

Drawing inspiration from Machiavelli's The Prince, Antongiavanni has crafted an essential handbook for the ambitious man who recognizes that smart and stylish appearance is a lever to power. From neckties to footwear, belts to suspenders,...



Free Gift with Purchase: My Improbable Career in Magazines and Makeup
Jean Godfrey-June
0307237486
April 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The beauty editor of Lucky magazine, Godfrey-June endears herself to readers with her admission that even she—a woman who receives "between fifty and two hundred products a day"—has the occasional bad hair day, the kind that "takes over and infects your entire being, moving quickly from your hair to your skin to your expression to your entire demeanor." Her memoir is fun, instructive and dishy (she used to work at Elle and recounts all manner of office brouhahas involving such personalities as the French creative director she calls "The Playboy," and the American editor-in-chief, dubbed "Above the Fray"). Certain readers will be enthralled by a clued-in woman demystifying what is for many an impervious world: this is what really works, and this is what's bunkum. But other snippets—Godfrey-June's...

Book Review
James Abbe, a 1920s fashion photographer, and Zoran, the designer whose simple, monochromatic clothes were extremely popular in the 1970s, anchor the 500 entries in this massive encyclopedia of fashion. Each designer, photographer, model, or icon gets a page with a large photo and informative but short caption. This has the wonderful effect of weighting each entry equally, thereby devoting the same amount of space to Charles Revson, creator of the Revlon cosmetics empire and relative makeup newcomer François Nars, pioneering clothing designer Mariano Fortuny and contemporary favorite Tom Ford.

Clearly, a good set of eyes edited this book. It's a tall order to choose just one image to define the many facets of a designer, model, or photographer. The choices made here are excellent and often surprising. The...



Managing with Integrity
Chares E. Watson
0275938654
May 1991
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
While there have been many books pub lished recently on business ethics--perhaps as a reaction to the moral shoddiness of the 1980s--this is the first one to base a large part of its conclusions on interviews with chief executive officers (125 in all) of major U.S. corporations. One clear conclusion emerges from Watson's investigations: it is possible to succeed and be ethical at the same time. There is much in the book to think about--perhaps too much. It could have been shorter, but this defect is of a minor order. It remains essentially a skillful study and at its best is full of luminous comment and incisive epigrams. For a briefer introduction to the topic, see O.C. Ferrell and Gareth Gardiner's In Pursuit of Ethics ( LJ 5/1/91).

Review
"This book extends the important work Angela McRobbie has done over the past decades in studying young women's subcultures and popular women's magazines to help feminize British cultural studies. The book is instructive not only about the struggles of young women to become 'new cultural workers' under the Thatcherite regime of enterprise culture, but also about the relative strengths and weaknesses of a type of social analysis whose growing popularity poses a challenge to disciplinary sociology."
–- Mark Jacobs, American Journal of Sociology



Book Description
From the catwalk to the high-style boutique, the common perception of the fashion industry is glamour and indulgence. Yet there is more than meets the eye in the industry known as the rag trade.

Chanel

From Booklist
Try as it might, this recollection of the Chanel exhibit at Manhattan's Metropolitan Museum of Art doesn't exactly capture the essence of Coco, a young, free-spirited couturier who epitomized the New Woman of her day. And still does. The details and icons associated with Coco Chanel, from the quilted bag and #5 perfume to stars and the ubiquitous double-C logo, are well represented; even the contributors (designer Karl Lagerfeld, for one) and the stark layout and typography suggest le style de Chanel, that "elegantly conceptual modernism." In one sense, the catalog is far superior to the go-live viewing; every piece of her work, whether in the 1920s or today via Lagerfeld's interpretation, reveals the attention to the many hidden points of dress. Yet, despite seven-plus essays and a wondrous parade of photographs...
