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 give brief historical notes to 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.

 

 

About the Author
