I love seeing what books people like to keep around their house. It helps me get inspiration into how I want my home to look, as well as, allowing me to understand that person better. These are the three books I currently have on my coffee table (amongst the piles and piles of magazines I have laying around my apartment haha).
The Fashion Book- Phaidon:
This book is like my bible. It is the A-Z guide of all things fashion. This book shows every person who created and inspired the fashion world. This book spans over two centuries with the whole industry represented. This book is a guide to over 570 clothing and accessory designers, photographers, stylists, schools, models and editors. As well as, the icons who instigated or symbolize an entire style or movement. This is great for those who really want to know the fashion industry inside and out.
14,000 things to be happy about- Barbara Ann Kipfer:
I have wanted this book for such a long time. Even just skimming through the pages you find things that make you happy! Whether its watching the sunset/rise, going to the beach, watching the snow fall or things as small as Aunt Jemima syrup, sipping a coke or getting the answers you want from a magic 8 ball. This book is just a friendly reminder that despite anything that goes wrong in your life, there is always something to be happy about.
101 Things I Learned in Fashion School- Alfredo Cabrera with Matthew Fredrick:
My mom got this book for me. This little book is super helpful for anyone in fashion. The book starts with “Fashion was born in the 12th century” and ends with a quote by Yves St. Laurent “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” Throughout the book there are little tips about how to illustrate, how to tie a tie, how to cut fabric, the measurements of average models and other helpful tips!
Anywhere you look in my apartment you will find a book or a magazine that has to do with fashion or the industry. I love when my passions bring out a passion in others! Let me know what books you like to keep around your home!!! Like, follow, comment and share!!
