Color Me Couture is a book that allows you to learn about and add your own touch to fashions throughout the ages of history. This unique offering offers great appeal to one that wants to design fashion , those curious to learn about fashions during certain periods, and artist eager to expand their skills in such a way as this. Whether it be one of those things or all, this book certainly might be of interest. There’s really no age recommendation for this book because it is put together in way that anyone could benefit and learn from, be it one of their school age years or beyond that.
There are 192 pages within this book. Readers will find an introduction of the book followed by several fashion categories ending with acknowledgments and about the contributors. The categories of fashion designs are Vintage Dresses, Contemporary Dresses, Assorted Fashion Garments, and Shoes & Hats. Each design is covered on two pages. The first page has an illustration of the garment, the title of the piece is called “Glacial Ball Gown” for example. And is followed by the date and season, material, inspiration & style, followed a description and a snippet of history on it. On the second page, the fashion illustration is on but the inner parts completed on the first page are left blank for you to design and color however you so chose. I really like how much freedom is given to design and create whether you’d want to design for that era or take that piece and make someone completely new.
This book would most certainly make a great keepsake after used to hold on to to share with future generations as well something to look back upon when you get that itch to design. When I have little more free time, I’m excited to start doodling around with this book myself. I love to draw and create and believe this book has the ability to awaken all sorts of imaginative and chic designs that are currently lying a bit dormant! I love that I’m learning history about pieces from the 1800’s to 1960’s and beyond! What a wonderful book!
