From the Inside Flap
An interactive colouring book for fashionistas of all ages, My Wonderful World of Fashion is packed with beautiful and sophisticated illustrations specially created by 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 and so on). Covering clothing, shoes, bags, jewellery and other accessories, the illustrations span both vintage fashions ― drawing on beautiful and interesting objects through the ages ― and contemporary invented 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 fashion addicts from 8 years plus.See all Product description

First of all this book is beautiful to look at it pretty, pink and it is massive, I believe it is 200 pages plus in length.
My creative juices were starting to flow and I hadn't even opened the cover yet, once inside you are treated to a visual spectacular, to the younger reader a lot of it may mean nothing such as the reference to many of the world's fashion houses but to the older reader it is a pure delight, for the budding fashion designer there are blank spaces to put your own creations, fabrics to doodle upon, accessories to make your mark upon.
Plus its not just plain white paper inside there are bright pink pages that I cannot wait to fill in. The paper itself is nice and thick, I have not used pens upon it yet so I can't vouch for them but I have used Koh-i-Noor Magic pencils and they looked great, well I think they did anyway!
There is so much fun to be had with this book and it'll last for ages too, as it says it is a book for creating, dreaming and drawing, my only problem is keeping it away from 8 year old!
