If you've been following along for any time at all, you'll know I'm a sucker for books. And books about textiles? Irresistible!
I also have friends who are willing to indulge me in my addiction and today when I got home from the clinic, there was a box from Amazon waiting for me. A friend has sent me this book. (Thanks Tien!)
Talk about eye candy. :) The author is Hamish Bowles.
Now I admit I know very little about haute couture and Balenciaga - as a child of the 70's I was more informed about Mary Quant. So I'm looking forward to learning more about this fashion designer and his source of inspiration.
Another fascinating designer was the Italian Fortuny. Weavers everywhere should be aware of his work, I think.
