Synopsis

My Wonderful World of Fashion A Book for Drawing, Creating and Dreaming by Nina Chakrabarti

An interactive colouring book for fashionistas of all ages, My Wonderful World of Fashion is packed with beautiful and sophisticated illustrations specially created by the leading fashion-illustrator Nina Chakrabarti. The book encourages creativity, with illustrations to colour in and designs to finish off, as well as simple ideas for making and doing (how to make a sari, turn a napkin into a headscarf, dye a t-shirt, etc.). Covering clothing, shoes, bags, jewellery and other accessories, the illustrations span both vintage fashions, drawing on beautiful and interesting objects from past ages, and contemporary designs from the illustrator's own imagination. 'Did you know...?' features giving brief historical notes encourage children to be inspired by history and by the fashions of other cultures. A wonderful celebration of fashion, the book will appeal to addicts from 8 years plus.
