Amazing book - Still breathing review
on 28 October 2013
I read this book because i'm interested in crime books and fashion. What I didn't expect to learn about was the dedication, heartache, love, loss and well downright cheek of the Donnelly brothers and their life time.
I could not believe how difficult yet interesting a family from Wythenshawe could be. I was captured from the introduction of the book and living not far from the area and learning that the brothers built a fashion empire, instantly had me intrigued.
The book starts off with the up bringing of the brothers and their family life. It goes on to detail the love, loss and commitment towards their love of fashion. The brothers started Gio-Goi and made it a hugely successful fashion brand, the images and celebrities they managed to get into their clothing is amazing. The books mentions how the brand became a 40 million pound a year company and then due to a few suits and bad decisions it comes crashing down. There is an exciting twist to this but I'll leave you to read that for yourselves.
The book then moves it focus to the new Brand ,YO (Your Own) which is booming and involved in Music, Management, Events and is exploding into the fashion industry.
This really is an excellent purchase and if you want something to relate to then this is the book for you.
