A lot of people in our country think that fashion is just for lazy people who can’t do something serious. But this way of thinking is totally false. Why? Here is my answer: It is very difficult to be creative because you should have an intense knowledge, you should know a lot of different aspects of life (cinema, literature, art, science, pyschology, politics) and all the time you should invent something new to engage your imagination, and of course, read, read, read & read more. Only this way, you can stay in fashion.
That’s is why I decided to offer you some interesting books. They will help you to improve your understanding about the life of great designers and fashion.
