One of my favorite parts about fashion is the industry itself because there is so much more than meets the eye.
Before getting into the industry, I thought it seemed quite simple. You design clothes. You make the clothes. You sell the clothes. Yet, as I quickly learned, there is so much more to it than that.
In honor of this passion for the industry, I thought I'd share with you some of my top picks for books and movies that will offer you different perspectives into the world of fashion.
The title of this book could not be more accurate and straight to the point. This is a book that will have you whipping through the pages in earnest to find out what is about to happen.
You learn some business insight while getting a drama-filled plot that is so intertwined you would think it's a soap opera. Even if you don't know anything or much about the Gucci family, you will appreciate this book.
I tend to veer towards movies that are more documentary-based, but this film from Lifetime drew me in.
Donatella Versace was vocal about not backing this movie, which could be a sign of its accuracy or of its inaccuracy.
I say, take the movie with a grain of salt, but be prepared for a wild ride behind Versace, which begins shortly before the death of Gianni Versace and works to highlight Donatella's struggles to take on the family business while working to keep her own family intact.
First off, I must admit that I haven't seen this documentary yet, but it's on my list. Iris Apfel seems to be an amazing person that is so full of life and says exactly what's on her mind. Additionally, in the trailer of the movie, she thinks she could possibly be the first women to wear jeans and dares not to speak about her time decorating the White House or she may get into trouble, which offers some perspective into her personality.
Here's another glimpse into Iris, from the documentary.
"I didn't give a damn about going to the party or being at the party, it was getting dressed for the party. And there's truth and poetry in that."
Stay tuned for more fashion book and movie picks.

When we saw Crazy, Rich Asians, the smash romantic comedy of 2018, we all agreed that one of the standout performers in the movie was Awkwafina (Nora Lum) – she was a definite scene-stealer. By the way, where are the sequels? The latest rumor is that filming will start with two movie sequels filmed back-to-back in 2020. Don’t bet the rent money. But never mind, when they do come out I’m sure they’ll knock our socks off.
I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.
Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a morning person. This means that every day I get up, fire up the computer for emails, stagger into the kitchen to make a blistering hot, strong 20 oz. mug of coffee and finally, click on New York’s Channel One to check on the weather and/or news while sinking into the sofa and trying to wake up. Ergo: I hate mornings or as Moss Hart once famously said, “Nothing happens before noon, that doesn’t happen after.”
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
