From Vogue editor memoirs by Alexndra Shullman and Grace Coddington, to Diane Von Furstenberg’s autobiography The Woman I Wanted to Be, here are the books every fashion girl should read.
The Woman I Wanted to Be by Diane Von Furstenberg
An autobiography littered with history (Diane’s mother survived the concentration camps in World War II), celebrity cameos, fashion’s finest names, love stories and business strategies, this book has everything you’d expect from an inspirational designer.
Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington
An honest and open diary of Vogue’s 30-year long creative director – plenty of interesting anecdotes and throwback photos galore, as you can imagine.
How to be Parisian Wherever You Are in The World by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret and Sophie Mas
Paris Through a Fashion Eye by Megan Hess
I was fortunate enough to interview – not once, but twice – the oh so lovely fashion illustrator extraordinaire Megan Hess on her visit to Dubai to promote her new book. A fashion girl’s answer to how to do Parisian chic, use this as your ultimate guide on how to do Paris the Megan Hess-approved way.
Inside Vogue: A Diary of my 100th Year by Alexandra Shullman
Anyone who watched Absolutely Fashion (a fly-on-the-wall BBC documentary observing at the comings and goings of British Vogue), will love this. Following editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman as British Vogue goes through their centenary issue, this autobiographical book is riddled with celeb cameos, juicy fashion goss, and a glimpse into the oh so glamorous world of London’s elite. Love!
