Book Description

21 Sep 2009
An interactive colouring book for fashionistas of all ages, My Wonderful World of Fashion is packed with beautiful and sophisticated illustrations specially created by the leading fashion-illustrator Nina Chakrabarti. The book encourages creativity, with illustrations to colour in and designs to finish off, as well as simple ideas for making and doing (how to make a sari, turn a napkin into a headscarf, dye a t-shirt, etc.). Covering clothing, shoes, bags, jewellery and other accessories, the illustrations span both vintage fashions, drawing on beautiful and interesting objects from past ages, and contemporary designs from the illustrator's own imagination. 'Did you know...?' features giving brief historical notes encourage children to be inspired by history and by the fashions of other cultures. A wonderful celebration of fashion, the book will appeal to addicts from 8 years plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous 16 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is a delight in every way, even the binding and printing are a paid careful attention, with lovely thick pages and a thick card cover, making it feel more like a limited edition art book than a colouring book.

It is pretty without being too girly and twee, and has just the right amount of pink (and I mean shocking pink) to make everyone happy. The content includes introductions to contemporary fashion icon like Schiaparelli and Jimmy Choo that you can embelish in your own style as well as creating your own unique masterpieces. Perfect young wardrobe raiders who love a clippy cloppy shoe.

As much as I love the diet of nostalgic 50's colouring books we are becoming accustomed to, this has been a welcome departure. It has already been received with excitement by my 5 and 6 year old girls. A fabulous book. I have already bought 3 and will be giving more away over the Christmas season. The ideal semi permanent present that provides hours of portable entertainment and takes up next to no space. I couldn't like it more.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good I bought two copies! 26 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
I first heard about this book via a fashion blog and bought it to see what all the fuss was about.

The illustrations are nothing short of stunning and this book appeals to all ages by including fashion classics, multi-cultural designs and charming ideas for projects.

Nina Chakrabarti has really hit the mark with this book. It is a great gift for anyone interested in fashion and design - I've ended up buying another copy as one of my friends was so taken with it that I gave her mine.

In summary - a beautiful & inspirational book that is a pleasure to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars BIG and wonderful 17 Mar 2011
By Mummy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great big slab of a book measuring around 27cm thick, so there is a bit more here than some of the other doodle books around. Little and big girls will love this. Everything you could think of to do with fashion and accessories is here for you to experiment with. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! 12 Feb 2011
By Mrs J.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book for my 13 year old daughter when she had to go into hospital and we could not have been happier with it. The book is huge and there are so many pictures to colour, complete and embellish that it stopped her from being bored and when she came home there was still lots left to do. Because it is more than just a colouring book it would suit older girls too. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars plenty of activities, maybe a bit old hat
Some good ideas in here & plenty of choice, but who needs to design tight packaging? Maybe a little out of date style-wise, but my daughter's happy enough with it.
