that sounds quite fun, i should get it for my niece
They picked the right one. Karl is so talented. I would like to have that book myself.
omg, how wicked!
he is such a talented man
That's a really good idea. They should do a whole series of books based on different designers.
perfect suggestion spike
How fun! I would have loved kiddie-level biographies of the classic Greats like Worth, Vionnet, Chanel, Dior, and Sciapirelli when I was a kid
Heck, I would have liked a book like the one Lagerfeld just did when I was a kid. From age 7 through about 15, my biggest dream was to be a designer when I grew up!
Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Even if younger kids aren't interested, once kids hit adolesence they start dreaming about what they wanna be. It would be really good for any aspiring designers.......
this is such a good idea , i agree with spike and i too wish this was around when i was a kid. Karl is indeed a talented man! thanks for sharing lena!
I don't know. I mean, of course, it's cute and a good idea. But Karl definitely doesn't strike me as a child person. It's really more strange and unexpected than anything else.
overall, i think its a fantastic idea. if i was a kid, i would want one. and even now, i still want one. he's a great designer, and this is a brilliant marketing move. even if children dont buy it, i can see sooo many people going out to get this just because its karl lagerfeld.... like me
Good point, he seems like he would either scare kids or would be scared of them......I don't know, he doesn't seem the most paternal of people...

Well, you never know... Maybe he's a kinder, gentler, supportive person around kids.
It's hard to be snobbish, arrogant and sarcastic against kids, because they aren't supposed to know and understand stuff. And they can be so wonderfully naive!
I'm not a big fan of Mr. Karl...
.... and hand me a 400 page biography over 32 pages anyday.
But for a youngster that wants introduced to the mesmerizing world of fashion
I want Hedi to make one... I love Berlin!
I think the book should target toward somewhat older audience, like ages 15 and older. I think it's too early for pupils in elementary school to be interested in high fashion. I think they should get to know general art and experience different cultures first, which means going through regular schooling and then focus more on fashion, if they are indeed interested.
its never too early, i was into fashion by ..5
haha same here Lena. I think I got it from my mum (who used to sew and make ALL of her own suits and clothes). I remember throwing a fit in front of the closet when I was 4/5 because no dresses were available and all I wanted was a big frilly dress to wear.
