Being the perennial bookworm, I am pleased to announce that I will be on the waiting list of this book, soon to be out in March 2010. What’s more exciting than ordering a fab book over the internet first thing on a Monday morning?
The blurb as seen on Coolhunting:
An in-depth exploration of jewelry design, “Fashion Jewellery: Catwalk and Couture” focuses on the designers and their working methods for creating distinct accessories for fashion shows and personal collections alike.
Author Maia Adams—a contributing writer for publications such as Vogue, Elle and Wallpaper—highlights 33 designers in all. Each gets their own chapter packed with an informative biography, insightful quotes, and a photo spread of their jewelry and sketches. While the styles and materials run the gamut, Adams chose each highly-skilled designer for their particular impact on the fashion industry and overall influence on 21st century fashion.
