Fashion surrounds us...and some might even say overwhelms us. Whether it's shopping for clothes or getting dressed in the morning, it's easy to feel at odds with a world that seems to be all about appearances. But not only can fashion be fun, silly, impulsive, and even inexpensive - it can also be a really rewarding avenue of self-expression for everyone. By starting with the most basic formula (clothes + art = fashion), Learn To Speak Fashion strips away the anxiety and artifice to get to the heart of what makes clothing so much more than what we put on our bodies. The lessons within these pages range from understanding how to dress every part of the body and how to make your own pair of pants, to learning how to harness your design ideas with an inspiration board, or hold a fashion show in your backyard. Like the two previous Learn To Speak titles, Learn to Speak Fashion warmly welcomes both the clueless and the informed with telling anecdotes; surprising revelations; and clear, conversational language from Laura deCarufel, an author who has extensive experience reporting on fashion around the world. So whether the aim is just to look good or to pursue a career as a designer, reporter, or stylist, this book will speak to the fashionista in all of us.
