The Fashion Questionnaire

We received some new books in today from Assouline.....publishers that create gorgeous books dedicated to the topics of fashion, photography, art and design. New York Fashion Week just finished and all the fashionistas have made their way to London. For the past two weeks I have been in fashion utopia pouring over images of all the new lust-worthy spring fashions.....and singing praises to the amazing designers that created them. So I was super excited to see The Fashion Questionnaire arrive today. It was created in the tradition of Assouline's bestselling Proust Questionnaire....but recast with a fashion angle and posed to the fashion industry's most important and influential designers. I can't wait to dive into is said to contain handwritten answers that intimately reveal the personalities and tastes of legendary designers including Thom Browne, Ennio Capasa, Pierre Cardin, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Roberto Cavalli, Alber Elbaz, Diane von Furstenberg, John Galliano, Carolina Herrera, Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Karl Lagerfeld, Catherine Malandrino, Nicole Miller, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Rucci, Sonia Rykiel, Olivier Theyskens, Isabel Toledo, and Valentino. And like Proust, this volume also includes blank questionnaires for readers and their friends to answer. After London Fashion week we still have Milan & Paris to look forward to.....maybe a Fashion Questionnaire party is in order!

We also received The Gift of Wine: A Gift Wrap Kit in today from Chronicle Books. Perfect thing to keep on hand for when those last minute hostess gift emergencies arise. The kit has everything needed to transform ordinary wine bottles into fabulous gifts. It includes twelve decorative wine sleeves as well as gift tags, elastic ties, and labels for personalizing each bottle. Hopefully oodles of holiday party invites will start arriving....and wont you look fancy arriving with the best dressed bottle of wine!
