If you have never read a single fashion magazine, then perhaps this book will be of interest. There are maximum 10 photos, rest are drawings. Text is so on the 5th grade level ie. 2 pages on there are 4 types of sweater: turtleneck, tunic, v-neck and crew neck. Stunning, isn't it? And comments that go along are: V-neck for victory! Sail your crewneck to the shore or smth stupid like that.
Not sure who is targeting either. On one section he shows how to cut up a t-shirt (which everyone has already done), then there's a picture of neon pink leggings next to a pencil skirt. I was bewildered. Any fashion book will have the content of this one but so much more. This guy is so lucky to have a job.
The book features incredibly basic information that a majority of people are already well aware of. For instance, there are pages dedicated to the different styles of skirts, jeans, tops, and cardigans. There is even two pages dedicated to classifying different skirt lengths! Aren't we all already aware of what classifies a skirt as mini, knee-length, ankle length, etc.? There are even sections on types of bras and underwear. Seriously, how superfluous is that? (Come on, Daman! Is this the best you could do, really?)
At twenty-one years old I found this information to be completely useless. I didn't learn anything new from Daman. Perhaps the information within this book is better suited to a middle-schooler who knows nothing about clothing.
Bottom line: Don't waste your money. If you really still want to read it, go to a bookstore, take a seat, and read it. It will take all of fifteen minutes.
I was disappointed with the book because i thought it was going to be more about the clothes on the show and how the characters are styled...it is probably my own fault for not reading more what the book was about.
It 's mainly about what clothes to suit anyone's body shape and how to pick signature pieces for yourself.
Pretty much standard stuff you'd get told in ones usual cosmo mag.
