Color Me Stylin': The Fashion Coloring Book by Carol + Lulu
"...the perfect melding of all my interests: high fashion/DIY/craternoons/self-expression/imagination/inspiration."
Most budding fashionistas might merely fantasize about apprenticing under Coco Chanel or Stella McCartney, Christian Louboutin or Versace, Jeremy Laing or Givenchy, or other icons of style.
Carol Chu and Lulu Chang's forthcoming The Fashion Coloring Book (Houghton Mifflin, 2012) gives young stylists an open-ended, freewheeling opportunity to wander in, pick up some pages from the sketchbooks of some of the most famed designers of our time and try their own imaginative hands at the finishing touches of these creators.
Carol + Lulu touch most of the bases in the work of the great designers, with items from socks to shoes, handbags to haute couture, denim to demure, Calvin Klein and cowboy to Christophe, Balmain to Burberry, and with attribution to each designer, allow the young artist to have free play with color on their inviting large-format pages with black-line drawings, to turn them into their own portfolio of fashion statements.
Fun for young fashionistas and aspiring artiste-designers, The Fashion Coloring Book takes a fresh look at fashion and a springboard to their own imaginative efforts for those who want to leave their own stamp upon fashion--their own or their world's.
