Normally, I'm pretty skeptical about fashion books for girls. This one, I would consider giving to a girl.
It encourages readers to actually make things rather than look at glossy picture. There are a wide range of ideas for drawing, some things to cut out, and ideas for projects for the readers.
It's not tied to a marketing campaign. Many fashion books are tied to a specific brand of clothes or toys. This one is not.
It enourages readers to come up with their own ideas, rather than accept the interpretations of the authors and their product placement.
It surveys a broad range of cultural influences and eras. Ancient, modern, Asian, American, African, and other influences and the connections are discussed. Nothing smug, pretentious, or overbearing, just cited as influences on modern fashion and as sources of inspiration.
The book is meant to be drawn, glued, and cut, so it might not be suitable to be shared (depends on the kids in question).
This would be an excellent gift for the fashion minded girl who is ready to have her horizons expanded.

Nina is an amazingly talented illustrator - you may not like her style, but that's just what it is: her style.
I highly recommend this book, because it goes above and beyond what one might expect from a coloring book.
It even encourages your child to seek out old patterns for ideas, which I thought was neat. The page with the different stitches was also rather generic and you will have to illustrate this to your child yourself.
Overall, I think the book is really neat and any girl interested in fashion will enjoy putting her ideas into play using this book. I also think mom will enjoy helping her along with her project!
There are ideas galore in this book. My daughter and I ooooh'd and aw'd while we looked at page after page of great things to color and create. This is an amazing collection of nail art, purses to design, hats and shoes to color and draw. There are dresses to design, hair styles to create, necklaces and earrings to create and color, and many more wonderful ideas.
This book is bound in a sturdy, large format. I noticed that with markers if you push hard while coloring with them, they did slightly bleed through to the other side, but light marker coloring, crayons, colored pencils and other media work very well with the paper weight.
The book is filled with fashion ideas, shoes, and fashions from around the world as well as designer ideas to color and dream about.
My ten year old daughter is a perpetual artist/notebook carrier and this book really fits the bill as far as kids who love to color and draw are concerned. It is a very lively and fun book to carry around and color and create. It also gives ideas on how to make things like Tye Dye and button necklaces to spurn creativity beyond the book. It has a stitch list and examples of stitches to take your creating and artistry further. This is simply a wonderful art book for girls. We adore it. During the winter months this will fill up many hours of coloring and creating. This book is not skimpy either, it's a huge fat book that will keep fashionistas busy for a very long, long time.
Just look through the pages here to get a sense of the artist's drawing style because it is specific and the same throughout the book. If you enjoy this slightly whimsical cartoon approach, you will like the book. I personally don't generally care for the style but I still liked it for the doodling aspect.

It's a great coloring book for my niece but the bookseller didn't pay close attention-- about 1/3 of the items were already filled out by the previous owner. Read morePublished 1 month ago by GlobalGMC
