Thank you I'll tell her. RD is the name or some abbreviation? Is it a bookstore?

My grandma got me this book last Christmas...she found it at a yard sale, no less!
It's my favorite fashion book! It's so phenomenal! It's basically Lacroix's diary for an Haute Couture collection, from the very start to the very finish! The book itself is a work of art, just as much as the clothes are! Lacroix does these amazing collages of inspiration and I love his sketching style...I just look at this book all the time!

(amazon)

I really enjoyed Fashion Babylon, and Deluxe - How Luxury Lost its Lustre. Currently reading the Terry Agins one - is it The End of Fashion? Obviously the Vogue ones are beautiful, I have Unseen Vogue, People in Vogue and In Vogue [the massive one]. Lots more on my Want list, I feel like these books are all I read - I'm doing my dissertation and have tonnes of research to do!

i'm currently reading 'the fake factor' by sarah mccartney which mostly focuses on why people buy fake purses, as well as mentioning other fake items that are regularly sold as well. it's pretty interesting.

If anyone is in Hong Kong, they are some really good fashion books in the book area next to the IFC cinema.

When I think of fashion books I think of the educational ones. As in the one's we use in class and stuff.

So far I'm really into my flat pattern book. lol.
