3.0 out of 5 stars overated much??, 3 Sep 2010
"The Dressmaker's Technique Bible: A complete guide to fashion sewing techniques" a self-addressed technique Bible.... what an overstatement. as for the other ten "five star reviews" i don't really know how to express my disappointment in this book! as a beginner i need not only half-decent diagrams and explanations, but even a simple summary and illustration on the construction of a garment would be ideal... not 10000 different seaming techniques and a short summary on the alteration of pattern blocks.

if anyone has any other recommendations i would appreciate it greatly because this was a huge let down.
i give it two stars based purely on the fact that it is spiral-bound...

5.0 out of 5 stars very inspiring, 5 July 2010
This review is from: The Sartorialist (Paperback)
i really appreciate the content of this book, not only for the clothes and the individuality of each person in the book, but the Sartorialist consists of generally good photography, i really love the story behind each photographs telling a story not just about the photographed pedestrian but also the persona of Scott Shuman

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing., 18 April 2010
This review is from: Dorian Gray [DVD] (DVD)
i have to say i absolutely love this film, the moral behind captured in the film was as thought provoking to me as the book is to me so far. By watching the film i was immediately inspired to read the book which i am in the middle of right now. i believe Oliver Parker illustrated the film very well; he chose the perfect actors to carry out his vision and didn't mess around with the story too much. I especially admire Ben Barnes portrayal of Dorian, he executed Dorians' descent from a naive, humble boy into a man practising acts of decadence, debauchery and secrecy so naturally. Also, Colin Firth being one of my favourite British actors was very successful in portraying Lord Henry; a virtuous man, posing to be an man of anarchy. this film really enabled Firth to show his versatility as an actor and captured Lord Henry's power and influence so well you didn't see Firth as an actor but as real life character.

all in all, my love for the film truly lies with the intensity and atmosphere of it all. Parker captured the film with subtle traces of melancholy and gloom visually which made the film seem more attractive to me alongside the well presented story.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing.... that's all., 14 April 2010
i love this book! so much detail and information is generously packed into the content. i've learnt SO much just after one day. i already had a strong insight on how fashion illustration works but i didn't have a structure or method to follow, which i feel i really needed because my ability to do many poses were limited.
this book is a must-buy, i am very glad i took the time to read most of the reviews and experience the book myself.
