How to Read Fashion: A Crash Course in Styles, Designers, and Couture by Fiona Ffoulkes
Release Date: April 2, $17.95
Speaking of classroom texts, this book is a prize for someone who wants to educate him or herself about fashion in general. I know I was the girl attending liberal arts classes in Michigan, doing my assigned homework at night and then staying up into the wee hours of the morning to study fashion. Living all the way over there, at a non-design college, I had to fend for myself when it came to my hunger for fashion education, so this is exactly the kind of thing I would have pored over.
