4.0 out of 5 stars Calling all fashionistas!, 1 Jan. 2009
By 
This review is from: Fashion Babylon (Paperback)
I was expecting more of an expose with this book but I found there to be too many cliches within the covers such as the models who don't eat, and the drugs... nothing too surprising there, so.... but I did enjoy the hierarchy of the fashion shows and who gets to sit where depending on their importance! This novel would also make me think twice about spending a fortune on 'designer' clothes from high end boutiques. The main character, a fashion designer who has dropped from Hot to Not in just one season is anything but loveable but nevertheless, she is highly amusing and although there isn't much of a storyline here, this book is a must read for anybody involved in the fashion business or anybody thinking of entering this fickle world and all the nonsense that goes with it. I found it easy to read and the book has interesting facts about the fashion business interwoven into the story if you can just try and ignore the obvious cliches that unfortunately pop up too often. This is my second book by this author and I'd definitely try one of her other ones as she's a witty, informed writer. If you're interested in fashion at all, pick it up - you won't be disappointed!
