City Fashion invites us to explore the fascinating world of fashion. Here, it is not the renowned designers that stand in the focus, but the young top designers and the upcoming fashion stars of tomorrow. No other book delves so deeply into the fashion scene of Paris. The chapters "Amazing Fashion" and "Luxury Fashion" show the young creative folks setting tomorrow's trends. Special attention is given to the new and upcoming representatives of "Green Fashion".
The book at hand also introduces the neighboring disciplines of shoe and jewelry design. After all, it is the matching accessories that make an outfit absolutely perfect.
As a very special highlight, the designers introduced in this book reveal their favorite cafés, tell us where they like to eat out, and which galleries inspire them. Of course, tips for the best places to go shopping are included, too.
All locations introduced in this book are listed with their address and homepage, and thus turn this volume into the ideal companion for every fashionista wishing to discover this fashion metropolis for themselves.

This small softcover book by Christine Anna Bierhals takes on the world of fashion and the fashionable folks in a most novel and informative manner. Obviously by the title, you already have a glimpse in to what the book is about, but Ms. Bierhals does away with all convention and gives all of us a lovely present all wrapped up between the covers.
At the risk of sounding trite: "Don't judge a book by its cover!"
The way in which the designers are grouped is a bit misguided; but the order or chapter division in which they are presented serves little importance when you measure it against the content. The book is set up to serve as an introduction to many designers, old and new, and their preferences when it comes to shopping, dining, or leisure activities.
Each designer gets a small bio and explanation of their area of expertise and then each is questioned about one of their favorite pastimes. Each designer and "pastime" has either a web address or street address in Paris to delight the curious and information hungry among us. These pastimes might include retail shops, restaurants, bars, or even some sights of Paris that may not rank as high on the must-see list as the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre.
Subjects include designers such as Damir Doma, Rick Owens, Alexia Mabille, Juun J, Maxime Simoens, Harry Halm, as well as brands/shops, hot spots such as Aperlai, Franck et Fils, Jerome Dreyfuss and Astier de Villatte, L'Eclaireur, Le Pompom, and Hotel du Nord. Few of these names will sound familiar but rest assured these and so many more are so worth your attention.
Hands down, City Fashion Paris enlightens and informs, satisfying the fashion novice as well as the most knowledgeable of the fashion set; it might also surprise the world weary traveler who may not have discovered these designers or the "destinations."
Reviewer Jeffrey Felner is a dedicated participant and nimble historian in the businesses of fashion and style. Decades of experience allow him to pursue almost any topic relating to fashion and style with unique insight and unrivaled acumen.
