3.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Days, 30 Dec. 2010
As a member of the original Bus Stop team I ordered this book out of nostalgia for the crazy days that followed the opening of Bus Stop. I loved Lee Benders sketches and some of her insights into production and fabric orders were insigtfull and enlightening for new designers. I was kinda disapointed that she passed by the beginnings and covered very little of what really went on in the shop and the colourful characters who were part of the scene at the time. Our rivals up the street were never mentioned (and after all credit needs to be given where credits due) nor were those who contributed from the very beginning to the atmosphere and the inspiration behind the designs.For vintage lovers a book for their achives but for those of us that were there I was left feeling just a little disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Difinative Review of the Subject, 30 Dec. 2010
Excellent background references on the start of ready to wear in fashion. Inspiring insights into the 'simple cotton dress' so charming and femine in an age that emphasised 'femininity' rather than 'sexy' as the look to which women aspired. Insightful for new designers into market targets and relying on quality rather than quantity as well as working with original designer prints in todays world of didgital mass production. A must have for lovers of cotton prints and fashion styling.

5.0 out of 5 stars A source of Inspiration, 30 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Little Black Dress (Hardcover)
Perfect referance material and a source of inspiration; the cover alone merits ownership of this book. Pictures speak a thousand words and this is what you get plus the references in the back to provide the chronology and history behind the indèmodeable petite robe noir. Bravo!
