Couture in the 21st Century

WHAT Couture in the 21st Century Book Launch 
WHEN 14th October 2010
WHERE  Laduree, Harrods

Harrods " Class of their Own "

Recently, one of my favorite department store Harrods, exclusively invited me to "Couture in the 21st Century" Book launch. Know for their spectacular and glamorous event such as " Esquire Best Dressed Man finalist " I was so excited to see familiar faces, yet again. 
 The amazing event took place at my favorite place Laudree and it was also a chance to meet the cream of the U.Ks top fashion designers, fashion bloggers and notable figures of society all celebrating the book revolution "Couture in the 21st Century" 
Couture in the 21st Century now available at Harrods.com for £40

The new book is like the style Bible, offering  revealing series of interviews hands of the world’s best-known couturiers in the world like Oscar de la Renta, Paul Smith and Giorgio Armani. Couture in the 21st Century also feature sensational contemporary designers of today like Christian Dior, Paul Poiret Roland Mouret, and Charles Worth and in addition to couture,  fresh faces like Hannah Marshall and Erdem have also found place in this splendid coffee table book.

 What's magical about the book is, it reveals the success of the fashion inspirational have found in time-honored traditions and many who have shaped and cultured society.
 “When a woman falls in love with something so much that she wants to buy it to wear – it is at that point and at that point only that it becomes fashion. What happens on the runway is not fashion – it is just spectacle.” Oscar de la Renta
During the night I was privileged to meet the gorgeous Marigay McKee, Fashion & Beauty Director of Harrods and talented Deborah Bee, Author and Editor-in-Chief of Harrods Publishing as well as the magnificent Roland Mouret.
