Synopsis

My Even More Wonderful World of Fashion Another Book for Drawing, Creating and Dreaming by Nina Chakrabarti

Ever wondered how Marie Antoinette wore her hair? How can you make a tasselled belt? Do you know which fashion trends were the most popular in the 80s? With hundreds more drawings to complete and colour in, garments to design and textile patterns to invent, My Even More Wonderful World of Fashion takes your imagination even further into the creation of exciting new styles, clothing and accessories. From shoes, to sunglasses, 50s cocktail dresses, African jewellery and feathered masks, Nina Chakrabarti's beautiful illustrations span both vintage fashion and contemporary designs, such as those by Comme des Garcons and Thea Cadabra. The 'Fashion Archive' and all new 'Hair Hero' and 'Fashion Flashback' features encourage inspiration through the fashions of other times and cultures. A wonderful celebration of dressing up, past and present, this follow-up to the hugely successful My Wonderful World of Fashion will appeal to fashion addicts from 8 years up.

About the Author

Nina Chakrabarti studied illustration at Central Saint Martin's College and The Royal College of Art, London. She uses line drawing to explore her love of the decorative arts, inspired by her past in Calcutta, India, where she grew up, and the exuberance of London, where she now lives and works.
