A few days ago I published a piece about the new Miffy X H&M Collection. My daughter is a little fashionista in the making and loves to go shopping with me. She takes a real interest in her clothes and how she looks so was delighted when Penguin Random House sent us a copy of their new title to review. Fashion Mash Up is a beautiful, collaborative craft book of fashion through the ages, which has been designed and curated alongside the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Packed with over 75 pieces of clothing, 250 stickers with fabulous glitter and foil finishes, hundreds of styling tips and five Instagram backgrounds, this is the ultimate book for all fashion lovers.
Readers can style 6 models, illustrated by fashion favourite Daisy de Villeneuve, from head to toe – using stunning pieces drawn from the V&A’s own exhibition and archives. Featuring Vivienne Westwood, Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, and Alexander McQueen, the best and most iconic designs from historical and contemporary fashion trends can be mixed and matched to create totally unique new looks.
Fashion Mash Up can be used as a creative outlet, for outfit inspiration, to create the perfect wishlist and as a brief introduction to fashion through the last century; making it the perfect gift for fashion bloggers, aspiring stylists, Instagram addicts and creative designers. You will be able to look for the #FASHIONMASHUP to see what everyone is sharing online.
Featuring fun quotes, interesting facts and pages upon pages of beautiful outfits and accessories, this will be an irresistible purchase for anyone and everyone with an interest in fashion. Stick, cut, colour, swap, make and mend your way through hundreds of outfit combinations, and join in celebrating the next biggest thing – in books AND fashion!
Fashion Mash Up is published on October 27th 2016, priced £17.99.
