Inspiration: Fashion Coffee Table Books
Another place I tend to get inspiration from – fashion books. These are the ones I currently have on my book shelf – I have more hidden away but we’d be here all night looking at pictures if I featured them all. The most recent additions to my collection are the Lady GaGa and Terry Richardson photography book and the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty book. I love both of these books and would really recommend them. The GaGa book is full of wonderful animated photography and is a definite must have for any fan.
Savage Beauty had me oooing and ahhhing at the wonderful works of art inside the pages. Lee’s creations really were a sight to behold – this is the best book out there for any McQueen fan, I spent my time saying ‘I saw so and so wearing that and that….’
Luella’s Guide to English Style is such a lovely little book it is packed full of amazing inspirational english women who have a definite style. The book also talks about the various fashion packs with hilarious illustrations of such subcultures as Emos.
The first book I bought out of these was the Vivienne Westwood book by Emma Wilcox – it’s a wonderful book packed with photos of Viviennes various collections dating back to the start of her career.
