Fashion Reading List Winter 2011

Media Credit:
Now that the fall semester is finally over, it’s time to catch up on some fashion reading. There are a lot of books that have been released, the most exciting are the Christian Louboutin and Dior Couture pieces. I left the PDFs on fashion branding in the dorm, but I plan on going into town and checking out books from the library (and yes, libraries still exist, even though you’re probably too busy reading your Kindle or ordering your books off of Amazon):

1. House of Versace (2010) by Deborah Bell- Especially with the recent collaboration of Versace for H&M, it’d be great to explore the fashion house’s past.

2. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty (2011) by Andrew Bolton– I should have read this a while ago. Enough said.

3. Christian Louboutin (2011) by Christian Louboutin– There is a beautiful exhibit of his work and archives at the London Design Museum on display in the spring. Reading this book before attending the exhibition will greatly add to your viewing pleasure.

 4. Dior Couture (2011) by Ingrid Sischy and photographed by Patrick Demarchelier– Everyone is dying to admire Dior’s beautiful creations by Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, John Galliano, and Dior himself. One of the most critically acclaimed fashion bibles to date.
