What's in the book

The Book

This unique book provides the reader with a practical knowledge of exactly what clothing characteristics to look for and how to proceed in building a wardrobe. Focusing on individual creativity and flexibility, the reader is asked to answer questions such as "What would work for me?", "Why?", and "How?" rather than approaching wardrobing from a "do and don't" or "always/never" perspective. This text is ideal for a fashion consumer, retailer, buyer or anyone interested in fashion.

Features:
-The 12 wardrobe strategies including selections based upon color, fabric, pattern, and cluster building
-A practical approach that allows for individual evaluation of figure variations, best colors and styles, and accessories
-Innovative worksheets, plan sheets, and exercises are included throughout
-TIPS FROM THE PROS and QUERY BOXES dispense special points of practical information and engage the reader in making thoughtful choices
