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.

I have always been intrigued by the actress/model/director, Chloë Sevigny because she’s an independent spirit who follows her own path. I mean this in a good way. Back a bit, I read that she had just earned a nice chunk of change so she treated her friends to a stay at the GoldenEye resort on the island of Jamaica.
I’m always on the prowl for fascinating females doing unusual things so I was stopped in my tracks by an article that appeared in the New York Post on Monday, September 23, 2019.
You and your family came to Manhattan for the holidays, but you’re having so much fun you decide to stay longer. After the tree at Rock Center, the windows on Fifth and the Met what else is there? You’re in “The City That Never Sleeps” so there are lots more goodies for you and yours to take in.
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.
