Hey Carissa! I am glad you joined the group! I just started to get into fashion books. I made this group to find people with more knowledge than myself. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and if you know anyone else on goodreads who is into fashion please feel free to invite them to join!

I added DivaVillage.com to the list of fashion websites! Also I changed the topic title because I didn't have a place for people to introduce themselves.

Carissa (goodreadscomchesanekc) HI Jamie!

Great to meet you, and thanks for adding DivaVillage to the fashion sites. I would love to offer as much info as I can...let me know what specifics you (and the rest of the group) is looking for and I will be happy to help!

Rachel (randhrshipper1) | 1 comments Hi, Jamie! I'm here from the JA group to finally join this one! I REALLY hope to get time to be active in this group, as I love fashion (though I don't think I apply it in my own life well at all!).

Thanks for joining Rachel! I feel I could do better myself but reading fashion books will hopefully help give me new ideas. This gives me a new idea for a thread...favorite stores and online websites to shop at (all price ranges welcome)!

Hi Carissa my name's Stephanie and I'm a Rupert Sanderson addict! If you wnat a really funny and satrical insight in women's clothing check out the must read for all "fashion" obsessed beauties it's called SLIDE by SAIRA VIOLA and describes in glittering detail what characters wear from Temperly gowns to Diane Von Furstenberg and Louis V doc folders . Ermenglida Zenga , Canali it's all in the novella and soooo funny!

Hi Aryan , please do tell me about fashion in Iran , I notice that here in the West ladies are wearing lots of tight leggings / jeggings and so on with shirts and loose tops or sometimes body con tops over them . In many ways this is very similar to modern Eastern and sometimes Muslim dress would you agree :)


message 14: by Jamie (new)

Jamie  (jaymers8413) | 524 comments Mod
That is a great question for Aryan!

Aryan I would love to know more about fashion in Iran and what you think about other countries fashion!


message 15: by Pippa (new)

Pippa Strong (pippasp) | 7 comments Hello fellow fashion addicts . My leopard print leggings to your ying and yang ! Wow not only is this group fashion literate but I cannnot believe you're doing a book group read on SLIDE and Diane Von Furstenberg ! Have a dress by the Ms. F, from when I used to work at JC and it drapes around me like a second skin love that dress! As I'm from London it would be great if I could get other people's views on fashion from the rest of the world and what it means to be part of fashion and how that translates into every day life . Congrats on a really splendid group Jamie :)

Yes it's fascinating as I know that many women in the Middle East have lots of beautifully designed embelished clothes using real gem stones and semi precious stones on luxury fabrics like silk and velvet .

Heather Miller (halie) | 9 comments Hey Stephanie there is a group read on SLIDE so make your opinions count and let us know what you think:)

message 30: by Megan (new)

Megan | 3 comments Hi Everyone! I'm Megan and I'm excited that I stumbled upon this group. I became really interested in fashion while taking a senior seminar on Cold War history during college. My paper explored the idea of whether the 1950s were as glamorous as popular culture today remembers them to be. I've been reading about haute couture, fashion, and culture ever since.

Dressmaker of Kahir Khana is about Afghanistan, I believe, and not Iran. Its non-fiction. I haven't read it but its the only one I know of that's in the same region.

When you see "offer" your first fashion book do you mean you've written one?

Gitte - Bookworm's Closet (gittetofte) Hello!
I'm Gitte from Denmark. I'm about to start a blog on fashion from a book lover's point of view, and I just had to join this group! I'm quite a newbie when it comes to fashion in literature, so I'm really looking forward to this group.


message 41: by Karen (new)

Karen (yorkiesandme) As introduction, I am a Fashion lover that recently began to look to books to inspire me as I curate my own "southern sartorial style". While I can appreciate Chanel or Dior on the runway, I also appreciate street style and regularly follow several style bloggers who are generations younger than I am. My own personal style you ask? On this Sunday.... jeans, button up, loafers, always an arm party and at least one monogrammed item.

message 47: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Stultz (wicketwillowbean) | 1 comments My name is Elizabeth and I'm 24 years old. I live in Kentucky (Louisville, to be precise). I have a BA in psychology and did two minors in English with a concentration in literature and Medieval Studies. I studied French for 5 years and have experience with Japanese, German, and Latin. One of my dreams is to translate Medieval Latin and French manuscripts. The other is to eventually become an archaeologist.

Currently, I work with toddlers as a teacher in a daycare. It's not exactly my dream job, or the best use of my degree, but it works for now. I am going back to school in August to work towards a degree in education so that I can become a third grade teacher. I also plan on doing another major in either microbiology or anthropology. I do enjoy some aspects of my job such as being able to teach my children and the joy that I receive when they finally catch on to what I've taught them. I also enjoy the smiles, hugs, and kisses that I get from my kids when I come to work in the mornings.

I am an avid reader and have been since I was a child. I generally read anything except westerns, romance, and inspirational/Christian books. I quite enjoy horror, fantasy, historical fiction, and mysteries. I have also gotten into the Quirk classics recently. Right now, I am reading Android Karenina. Classic literature is another favorite of mine with Edgar Allan Poe, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, HP Lovecraft, Victor Hugo, and Gaston LeRoux being among my favorites.

I look forward to making new friends and taking part in book discussions.

-Elizabeth

Emily Ann (emiliaann) Hey guys! So my name is Emily, and I'll be 16 this year. I'm planning on applying to a fashion institute and majoring in fashion merchandising.

Welcome to the group Emily! I wish I would have known the jobs available in the fashion industry and had a greater love of fashion when I was in high school and majored in merchandising. Instead I majored in Chemistry.
