Format: Hardcover
I was stuck at home, miserable flu, exercising the old index finger on the TV remote, stopping only to sneeze. By chance I caught this book being previewed on a well-known daytime chat show. Gamely, its (the books’) designer Ellwand and couture illustrator David Downton were teaching Graham Norton how to make a petal dress, similar to one in the book, allegedly. - An invaluable skill, I’m sure.
Anyway, I pre-ordered the book from this site. It arrived one month later on publication and I wasn’t disappointed. ‘Fairie – Ality The Fashion Collection’ is as extravagant as it is beautiful. Damn! I wouldn’t mind some of those dresses! Alas, they weren’t made for my figure…(or yours) but for the diminutive faerie…
If you order this book, you won’t be let down. It’s likely you won’t have seen anything like it before. Yes, a fashion collection for faeries is bizarre. But if you can suspend belief, you’re drawn - no - invited (there’s a genuine invitation card inside), into a magical world where you’re a privileged guest in a most unusual realm.
This is a book of fantasy but with a highly creative and sometimes-interactive layout. Delightful and delicate faerie clothes and accessories, made from flowers, leaves, seedpods, feathers and shells fill the pages colourfully. Downton’s alluring portraits blend with Ellwands' expert photography, enticing you in, making you believe that there is realism to the event – the secret show that you’re exclusively party to by royal faerie invitation. A story unfolds, written enchantingly by Eugenie Bird who understands fashion very well, and faeries too apparently.

Format: Paperback
This is just a lovely book, the author has created a wardrobe of high end clothes for the discerning faery from quirky items such as feathers, leaves, flowers and bark.

Not just for anyone who is nuts about little people, this is a great book for anyone interested in mixed media art and creators such as Jane Hall who fuse embroidery with nature and fantasy.

This is a wonderfully illistrated book. Really a costume and designer book all done in natures goodies. Anyone interested in faeries will love this book. I have owned it for several years and purchased this for a young friend who has just started making clothes for her own faeries. She loves the book.
