So Fashion Week is upon us (or was? I'm not sure of the exact dates) in Milan. In honor of this, I am doing a theme list of books about clothes. Now, as always, I'm being extremely liberal with this. Some may be about clothes, some may be about special kinds of clothes with magical powers, some may just be about people who like fashion. If clothes feature in some way shape or form, it's going to be in here.
Why: The main character is a fashion history nut. Plus, Cabot is always just fun to read.
Why: If you know anything about the movie, you know why. Though I honestly didn't know there were all these other books.
Why: Tim Gunn is legendary and flawless (I'm a Time Gunn fangirl, not going to lie). All of his books on fashion are pretty solid. This is my particular favorite though because it goes into the history of articles of clothing. Like say the history of the suit.
Why: Story-wise, this series is pretty average. What makes it for me are the beautiful fashion illustrations in between the story. I want to buy the books just for the gorgeous packaging alone.
Why: This is a cozy mystery series about a woman with magical powers who owns a vintage dress shop and uses her gifts to solve mysteries.
Why: Features a mystery wrapped up around a missing necklace.
Why: If you don't know who Christian Dior is...I really don't know what to say to you. Just know at the very least, he's very important in fashion.
Why: There are two books in the series. They both feature a dress that grants wishes. Don't lie, we all want that dress.
Why: about a group of girls who have to create a fashion line for a school project.
Why: About a group of friends who find a pair of pants that magically fits all of them (want those damn pants), and the adventures they have whilst wearing the pants.
