Fashionably Challenged? Make It Work, with Tim Gunn

October 11, 2012 at 1:41 pm 1 comment

Do you solemnly swear to practice good fashion, and nothing but good fashion, so help you God? Raise your right hand, because style guru Tim Gunn’s new Fashion Bible is your new go-to source for all things fashion fabulouscity! Known as the headmaster with a heart on Project Runway and on his spinoff program, Tim Gunn’s Guide To Style, the former Parsons faculty member is a bona fide author.

Instead of adopting his Project Runway advice to “make it work,” in the Fashion Bible he challenges readers to take a good, long look at their wardrobe and decide what really makes them shine. In between the pages of sage advice on everything from tackling trends to flattering your figure, Gunn offers antidotes of the evolution of fashion and how some of our wardrobe staples came to be.

The fashion industry’s glitterati has widely praised Gunn’s work, including Boston Common Magazine’s current cover girl, Diane von Furstenberg, who said of this just released book: “Tim Gunn is fun and chatty, but most of all he is incredibly knowledgeable and informed!”

Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible can be ordered at Island Books in Middletown AND the newly opened Island Books located at 135 Spring Street in Newport. (Check out pics of the charming new space on Island Books’ Facebook page by clicking here.)
