Editorial Reviews


'Writer Lesley Scott is clearly passionate about lingerie...an inspiring range of images, from the sexy to the pretty to the memorable.' The New Zealand Herald (October 2010) A fabulous book that contains some very interesting facts, pictures and an exciting history of lingerie ... contains a little bit of everything I love ... I would recommend this book, even if you don't have a passion for lingerie but like to learn about history. Skin Two --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

Lesley is a fashion and lifestyle writer and founder of the popular, longtime indie fashion blog Fashiontribes.com which looks at the trends through the lens of fashion's four mega-tribes that she tracks: Folkspun, Supremium, Apocalytical & Futurenetic.

She is professional blogger, podcaster, style expert and author of several books, including Lingerie: A Modern Guide (Chartwell Books), CROSSDRESS TO IMPRESS: Fashion, Beauty & Style Advice for Crossdressers & Transgender Women (2015) AND The Future of You (2014). Her work has appeared in Marie Claire Asia, Jessica, 25 Ans, GQ Taiwan and Elle Girl Korea. She has been featured in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Women's Wear Daily and USA Today. She is a Channel Curator for Sulia.com, a Fashion Contributor to Answers.com

When she's off the clock, travel tops the agenda. Raised in Hong Kong, life abroad featured amazing trips like staying on a houseboat in Srinagar, visiting the Taj Mahal and meandering down Guilin's Li River. After finishing grad school, she spent time teaching college students in Romania, Latvia and Kazakhstan. Her favorite adventures include visiting the iconic statues of Easter Island, checking out the penguins in Patagonia, bungee-jumping in Costa Rica, hiking the Inca Trail in Peru, tooling around Tasmania in an old beater, caving in New Zealand, camel-trekking in Morocco, safari'ing in Tanzania, hiking in Nepal, negotiating the subway in Cyrillic in Moscow and embarking on an out-of-control buddha-acquisition spree in Burma. And where to next? Hopefully Bhutan.

She currently lives in Portland, Oregon and is hard at work on her next book, Fashiontribes/Futuretribes - a look into the future of fashion.
