ALWAYS PACK A PARTY DRESS: AND OTHER LESSONS LEARNED FROM A (HALF) LIFE IN FASHION. Amanda Brooks. Blue Rider Press, Penguin Random House LLC, New York, 2015. 300 pp. with 215 ills. (154 col.). 23 x 17 cm. ISBN 9780399170836 In English.
Publisher's description: An authentic voice in the world of style and how-to books, Amanda Brooks' I Love Your Style has been a fan favorite since publication in 2009. Since then, she has built a devoted following through her blog, Instagram, and beyond. Her unique and enviable yet accessible style has inspired thousands of women of all ages to find their own personal look and explore their identity through the clothes they love and wear. In the past twenty years, Brooks has created a unique place for herself in the fashion world. She spent the early years of her career as a photo assistant for Patrick Demarchelier, a "gallerina" at the Gagosian Gallery, and at various fashion posts before finding her dream job as fashion director for Barney's New York. Along the way--and wearing more than a few of the outfits we've all regretted at one point or another--Brooks discovered the key to creating her personal style, combining influences as wide-ranging as childhood prep school, Grateful Dead concerts, contemporary artists, pop culture, and her current home outside of the fashion bubble, a well-worn farmhouse she shares with her family (and a host of animals) in the English countryside.
