At the start of Paris Fashion Week, I cannot imagine a more appropriate book to offer you a glimpse into the intricate makings of couture fashions. Every page of this book is filled with lush images that will make you gasp; I certainly did! Enjoy!

Ah, Karena, this is such a lovely post! I so love those old sample books of fabric and thread - aren't those LOVELY?
The fashion is lush and so soft. And thank you as well for coming to visit my post. I am at least a day or two LATE in my visits because school is very time consuming, but it's good. I'm just grateful to have a job!
BIG HUGS to you dear Karena, and I hope you are well! Anita
Book about fashion that I have is Tom Ford, and I guess I would argue that that is more about photography done anything. This looks gorgeous!
So amazing to understand all of the intricate details that go into these beautiful pieces. I love that gray silk skirt with the lambskin bustier, so exquisite.
Karena, will you please send me your correct url or web address? For some reason my blog roll isn't updating with your posts, what I show now for you is a post that is 10 months old. I tried copying and pasting but it didn't work for some reason. I had the same thing happen with Tina at Enchanted Home. My email address is email@example.com. I don't want to miss out on any more of your great posts! Thank you so much, Emily
Thank you for popping over so regularly you are a dear!!!
Wasn't this book incredible?
My friend and I loved it. I"m so glad that someone finally put the spotlight on these gifted artisans!
Have you opened your lavender epsom salts yet?
A stunning book, right up my alley. I must get my hands on it. It looks like eye candy. Thanks for sharing.
Enjoy you're weekend.
Looks like a wonderful book..beautiful dresses..
Beautiful inspiring book…need to find space on my bookshelf!
Oh Karena, I would so love to have a book like this, I do have one with paper and paint finishes for designs, yet the fabric uniquely sewn into the book would be grand to display.
The models dresses stun.
Thank you Karena for always posting the most unique.
See you and your beauty soon.
How are you feeling these days? I hope health and your care is at its best.
Good morning Karena! Thank you for coming to visit this beautiful Sunday morning! I am always fascinated by the idea of freedom, of birds, of movement...and the constant sloughing off of layers to reveal who we really are. Oh the joy! Many hugs my friend! Anita
