This season, I’ve been flying through books. Currently, I’m reading #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso and loving it. For those of you who intend on cuddling up beside the fire (or just on your couch) after Christmas dinner and searching for a great fashion book, here are some that are on my list:

The end of fashion book

The End of Fashion: How Marketing Changed the Clothing Business Forever  By: Teri Agins

For those who are keeping and eye on market trends and the evolution of the fashion industry, this one is a great eye opener. Agins talks about mass marketing and how designers are taking cues from mainstream consumers rather than a pure form of designing from the past.

I’ll Drink to That: A Life in Style With A Twist  By: Betty Halbreich

Betty Halbreich is one of Bergdorf’s best known personal shopper. She recently starred in the film “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorfs”. The book is largely a memoir and takes you through her life from a troubled childhood to success in New York. If you’ve seen the film, you’ll know she has quite the personality and the book will no doubt be just as entertaining as she is. She’ll also be the subject of Lena Dunham’s new show so keep an eye out for it.

#GIRLBOSS  By: Sophia Amoruso

This book is great for the go getter fashion girl. One of the most important aspect about success is learning from the best. Amoruso takes you through her past as a thief engaging in petty crimes to an internet mogul with a company worth millions. You might even know it-Nasty Gal.

Hijacking The Runway: How Celebrities Are Stealing The Spotlight From Fashion Designers  By: Teri Agins

This installment of Agins’ book focuses on how celebrities are now the centre of attention when it comes to runway shows. If you’re interested in where fashion is heading, this is a great book to read.

Refinery 29: Style Stalking  By: Piera Gelardi and Christene Barberich

If you’re looking for a great book on shopping and styling, this is it. Unlike most books, Gelardi and Barberich encourages readers to use what’s already in their closet to create a great look instead of going out and spending thousands of dollars.

Happy reading! -A.
