I’ve been a “fashion girl” for as long as I can remember. I would watch movies and try to replicate the outfits I saw and poured over magazines like my life depended on it. As I got older I realized that if I wanted to be in the future world of fashion I had to learn about the past. As with any subject, fashion has a history and those who are in fashion know it’s history. If you’re not sure who Diana Vreeland is or what the term “Dior’s New Look” means then you’ve got some studying to do. Anyone can get into fashion, but those who know the industry inside and out will be the ones who will strive. Here are the 10 books you need to read if you want a career in fashion.
[…] the sweetness of your voice / and the thrill of your laugh have so stirred the heart / in my own chest, that whenever I catch / sight of you, even if for a moment, / then my voice deserts me / and my tongue is struck silent, a delicate fire / suddenly races underneath my skin, / my eyes see nothing, my ears roar / cold sweat rushes down me, / trembling seizes me, / I am greener than grass. - Sappho
