Book Description

IN Catwalk, DEBORAH GREGORY creates a new YA series that takes her famously upbeat urban voice and combines it with the appeal of Project Runway and America’s Next Top Model. Catwalk follows Pashmina, Felinez, Angora, and Aphro, four best friends at Manhattan’s Fashion International High School who are about to enter the contest of their lives. Each year, students split up into Fashion Houses and compete to design, produce, and show fully original fashion lines. The winner gets a scholarship, a professional show, and a real shot at a career in fashion. Bouncy, smart, and nearly irresistible, Catwalk is a fierce introduction to a fashion world where fabulosity trumps waist size, and there truly is room for everyone.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catwalk is A Wonderful Walk On the Runway :D February 6, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Catwalk is A Colorful Wonderful Walk Down the Runway :D

As a fashion photographer, this read brought chuckles of found memories of colorful people I have worked with over the years. It allowed me to escape into the dreams of being a young girl again :D

Ms Gregory's style of writing paints pictures as you read. She captured my attention, with words on the page which is hard for me as I am an image maker so words rarely grab my attention for too long. I her descriptive words - inspiring my visual creative nature - I couldn't put it down... yes I know this is a book clearly for girls but I really enjoyed the read :D
Anyone whose ever wanted to be in the fashion industry, or for those like myself who have been in the production end of the industry I say read it!!!
Fashion Stylists - makeup artists, hair stylists, photographers, models, aspiring actors - you will really enjoy it :D

I need to buy a few more copies for my studio as I am sure my colorful fashion colleagues will enjoy it :D

5.0 out of 5 stars A fashionista read! February 12, 2012
By Kylie Q
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Catwalk series is a must-have book trilogy for all fashionistas. Pashmina and crew take you on a furbulous journey through fashion stardom! Ms. Deborah Gregory does a fantastic job telling these characters stories. There's a character for everyone to relate to on a personal level. The book definetley gave me an inside look on the clawing fashion world. Overall, this book gave me so many great tips to working with friends, being organized, and being fashion forward. The last book in the series (Rip the Runway) gave a fast, but thrilling look on the past accomplishments and experience the House of Pashmina overcame. In my opinion, this book will live forever on my fashion book shelf. Kudos to Ms. Gregory for this fantastic fashion series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fashion-World Harry Potter February 15, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another reviewer said that it's a must-read if you're a fashionista. But I really enjoyed the books and I'm, well, not a fashion person at all. It's, well, not to repeat myself too much, very fun to read about kids designing their own fashion show. Honestly, the books are like a fashion-world harry Potter. Best way to describe them, really.

More About the Author

Deborah Gregory is the author of the Catwalk trilogy, the second of which Catwalk: Strike A Pose is currently purring. The entire Catwalk trilogy(Laurel-Leaf imprint, division of Random House) will be published on September 13th 2011) in a special OMNI edition ($9.99). The Catwalk trilogy contains three novels--Catwalk, Catwak: Strike A Pose and Catwalk: Rip the Runway. Gregory is also the author creator producer of the wildly popular franchise, The Cheetah Girls, which consists of 26 books, three Disney Channel original movies, three nationwide 88-city concert tours, extensive spotty merchandise and ferocious fans around the globe. The inspiration for the CATWALK book series comes from Gregory's background as a graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology and a former runway model in Europe as well as a plus-size designer and boutique owner (Toto in New York...Fun In Larger Sizes which was located on West Broadway in Soho). Actually, the larger than life leopard clad character of Galleria's Mom, Dorothea Garibaldi (DG) in The Cheetah Girls is Gregory herself as is her pooch Cappuccino who plays the Cheetah Girls mascot, Toto (Toto who slept in the store window in his cheetah bed was the original inspiration and may he RIP). Gregory was raised in the foster care system under ACS in New York City and aged out of the system at 18. Thus, the inspiration for the adult novel she is currently writing about a girl who ages out of the foster care system in the Bronx and is trapped in New York's underworld until she finds a way to reinvent herself and find redemption. Gregory lived in Paris, Firenze and Milan as a runway model. She currently lives in Manhattan with her pooch Cappuccino, her second adorable, feisty bichon frise pooch.
