A journal with cute baby pictures for capturing your thoughts. Every day is entertaining under the Big Top, and these babies are born performers. Catch the pint-size stars and their acts on the covers and interiors of these Baby Circus journals by Jean Marie. Each journal has ruled pages and a ribbon marker. American photographer Jean Marie Reed came to her new-found role in the wonderful world of baby photography with great zeal and enthusiasm, in large measure because of her connection with and love of children. As a fashion photographer for the last eight years under her initials, J.M. Reed, she has worked internationally for such publications as Vogue, Harper¿s Bazaar, Marie Claire, and Elle. She has been sought after to photograph notable film stars, Olympic athletes and politicians. Jean Marie began her journey in the fashion industry working for nine years in front of the camera, based in Paris. From those early experiences, she was able to develop a uniquely empathic and nurturing approach to conducting her photo sessions, which has now translated into stunning results both in the images she creates as well as the pleasurable and fun environment on the sets. The conceptualization and creation of Baby Circus has been an exciting and rewarding experience for Jean Marie. She has enjoyed every moment spent with the babies. "Each child is truly special, beautiful and unique," reflects Jean Maria. "The journey has been one of great faith, imagination and love. It has been a rare gift indeed.". Seller Inventory # 005188

About this Item: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. A charming and insightful memoir about coming of age as a fashion journalist in 1980s Paris, by former Vogue and Harper s Bazaar editor Kate Betts, the author of Everyday Icon: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style You can always come back, my mother said. Just go. As a young woman, Kate Betts nursed a dream of striking out on her own in a faraway place and becoming a glamorous foreign correspondent. After college--and not without trepidation--she took off for Paris, renting a room in the apartment of a young BCBG (bon chic, bon genre) family and throwing herself into the local culture. She was determined to master French slang, style, and savoir faire, and to find a job that would give her a reason to stay. After a series of dues-paying jobs that seemed only to reinforce her outsider status, Kate s hard work and willingness to take on any assignment paid off: Her writing and intrepid forays into la France Profonde--true France--caught the eye of John Fairchild, the mercurial fashion arbiter and publisher of Women s Wear Daily, the industry s bible. Kate s earliest assignments--investigating the mineral water preferred by high society, chasing after a costumed band of wild boar hunters through the forests of Brittany--were a rough apprenticeship, but she was rewarded for her efforts and was initiated into the elite ranks of Mr. Fairchild s trusted few who sat beside him in the front row and at private previews in the ateliers of the gods of French fashion. From a woozy yet mesmerizing Yves Saint Laurent and the mischievous and commanding Karl Lagerfeld to the riotous, brilliant young guns who were rewriting all the rules--Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, John Galliano--Betts gives us a view of what it was like to be an American girl, learning about herself, falling in love, and finding her tribe. Kate Betts s captivating memoir brings to life the enchantment of France--from the nightclubs of 1980s Paris where she learned to dance Le Rock, to the lavender fields of Provence and the grand spectacle of the Cour Carree--and magically re-creates that moment in life when a young woman discovers who she s meant to be. Praise for My Paris Dream [A] glittering coming-of-age tale. --Entertainment Weekly (The Must List) Fashion and self-examination--froth and wisdom--might seem like odd bookfellows, but Betts brings them together with winning confidence. --The New York Times Book Review As light and refreshing as an ice cream cone from the legendary Berthillon, My Paris Dream evokes the sights, sounds, smells and styles of 1980s Paris. --USA Today My Paris Dream is awesome. --Man Repeller What was Bett s Paris dream? Her dream was her awakening, [which] is elegantly chronicled in these pages. --The Daily Beast For those who are interested in the men and women involved in haute couture, Betts reminiscences will be a delight. --Kirkus Reviews Full of slangy French, delectable food and swoon-worthy fashion. --BookPage An amazing story of a young woman in Paris trying to break into the fashion business. --Sophia Amoruso, author of #GIRLBOSS Kate Betts s story brought me back to my own young self and the journey I made--in my case, from a small town in Illinois to New York City. --Cindy Crawford From the Hardcover edition.

About this Item: Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first book about Maeve Brennan, the recently rediscovered New Yorker writer from Ireland, who wrote like an angel, and looked like a fashion model, but became homeless in Manhattan in the 1970s and died forgotten in 1993. Born in Dublin in 1917 to politically active parents, Maeve Brennan s childhood in Ireland was moulded by the cultural ideologies of nationalism and lit by the creative energy of the Abbey and Gate theatres. She was seventeen when her father was appointed to the Irish Legation in Washington DC, where he was Irish Minister throughout World War II. Maeve wrote fashion copy at Harper s Bazaar until 1949, when William Shawn invited her to join The New Yorker. Tiny, impeccably groomed, and devastatingly witty, in William Maxwell s words, to be around her was to see style being invented . Her richly textured fiction criticism and Talk of the Town pieces, published in the 1950s and 60s, during The New Yorker s most influential period, offer unsparing portraits of the Ireland she had left and the America she inhabited. As this richly researched and wide-ranging book makes clear, Maeve Brennan s effect on the people who met her, her eye for human behaviour, clothing and domestic settings, her memory of home and her courageous life as a woman alone in metropolitan America make her an icon of the twentieth century.

About this Item: SIMON SCHUSTER, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the New York Times bestselling author and former beauty editor Cat Marnell, a vivid, maddening, heartbreaking, very funny, chaotic (The New York Times) memoir of prescription drug addiction and self-sabotage, set in the glamorous world of fashion magazines and downtown nightclubs. At twenty-six, Cat Marnell was an associate beauty editor at Lucky, one of the top fashion magazines in America--and that s all most people knew about her. But she hid a secret life. She was a prescription drug addict. She was also a doctor shopper who manipulated Upper East Side psychiatrists for pills, pills, and more pills; a lonely bulimic who spent hundreds of dollars a week on binge foods; a promiscuous party girl who danced barefoot on banquets; a weepy and hallucination-prone insomniac who would take anything--anything--to sleep. This is a tale of self-loathing, self-sabotage, and yes, self-tanner. It begins at a posh New England prep school--and with a prescription for the Attention Deficit Disorder medication Ritalin. It continues to New York, where we follow Marnell s amphetamine-fueled rise from intern to editor through the beauty departments of NYLON, Teen Vogue, Glamour, and Lucky. We see her fight between ambition and addiction and how, inevitably, her disease threatens everything she worked so hard to achieve. From the Conde Nast building to seedy nightclubs, from doctors offices and mental hospitals, Marnell treads a knife edge between glamorizing her own despair and rendering it with savage honesty.with the skill of a pulp novelist (The New York Times Book Review) what it is like to live in the wild, chaotic, often sinister world of a young female addict who can t say no. Combining all the intoxicating intrigue of a thriller and yet all the sobering pathos of a gifted writer s true-life journey to recover her former health, happiness, ambitions, and identity (Harper s Bazaar), How to Murder Your Life is mesmerizing, revelatory, and necessary.

About this Item: Phaidon Press Limited, London and New York, 2003. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st. Pictorial boards, 239 pp., chiefly illus., bib. notes, index; 23 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Publisher's mylar jacket with light edgewear. "In late 1964, Andy Warhol commissioned young fashion photographer David McCabe to document his daily activities for one year. During the course of this project, whenever the artist called, McCabe would come to meet him either at the factory, an opening, a party, a coffeeshop or any place where Warhol wanted to be accompanied by the photographer and his camera. In the end, these images were never published, perhaps because they revealed more than the increasingly-famous Warhol was willing to share with the public. Hidden away for almost 40 years, the significant majority of these photographs are now presented together for the first time to largely fulfill their original intention, A Year in the Life of Andy Warhol. These images not only represent unique documentation of one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century, they also provide a behind-the-scenes look at the New York City art world at a time when Pop Art was at its peak. McCabe's photographs are accompanied by the descriptions and reminiscences of Factory insider David Dalton, one of Warhol's first assistants. / David McCabe was born in 1940 in Leicester, England, where he studied graphic design and photography. While in art school, he won an international photo competition sponsored by the magazine Practical Photography and was hired by the Mayflower photo studio in London. In 1960, he moved to New York City, where he first worked as an assistant and studied under Alexey Brodovitch, Henry Wolf, and Melvin Sokolsky. He received his first assignment with Cond Nast in 1963, and was contacted by Andy Warhol the following year. McCabe's photographs have been published in various magazines including Life, Harpers Bazaar, Mademoiselle, W, French Elle, French Vogue, London Times, and a handful of his photographs of Andy Warhol have recently been exhibited in many museums around the world. David Dalton was a founding editor of Rolling Stone, and is the author of some dozen fiction and non-fiction books, including 'James Dean: The Mutant King' and 'El Sid: Saint Vicious.' As teenagers he and his sister Sarah were Andy Warhol's first assistants. With Warhol he designed in 1964 the Fab issue of the magazine Aspen. - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

About this Item: Duke University Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since the 1990s, young Asian Americans including Doo-Ri Chung, Derek Lam, Thakoon Panichgul, Alexander Wang, and Jason Wu have emerged as leading fashion designers. They have won prestigious awards, been chosen to head major clothing labels, and had their designs featured in Vogue, Harper s Bazaar, and other fashion magazines. At the same time that these designers were rising to prominence, the fashion world was embracing Asian chic. During the 1990s, Asian shapes, fabrics, iconography, and colors filled couture runways and mass-market clothing racks. In The Beautiful Generation, Thuy Linh Nguyen Tu explores the role of Asian American designers in New York s fashion industry, paying particular attention to how they relate to the garment workers who produce their goods and to Asianness as a fashionable commodity. She draws on conversations with design students, fashion curators, and fashion publicists; interviews with nearly thirty Asian American designers who have their own labels; and time spent with those designers in their shops and studios, on their factory visits, and at their fashion shows. The Beautiful Generation links the rise of Asian American designers to historical patterns of immigration, racial formation, and globalized labor, and to familial and family-like connections between designers and garment workers.

About this Item: University of Pennsylvania Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title When Broadway Was the Runway explores the central and largely unacknowledged role of commercial Broadway theater in the birth of modern American fashion and consumer culture. Long before Hollywood s red carpet spectacles, Broadway theater introduced American women to the latest styles. At the beginning of the twentieth century, theater impresarios captured the imagination of their largely female patrons by transforming the stage into a glorious site of consumer spectacle. Theater historian Marlis Schweitzer examines how these impresarios presented the dresses actresses wore onstage, as well as the jewelry and hairstyles they chose, as commodities that were available for purchase in nearby department stores and salons. The Merry Widow Hat, designed for the hit operetta of the same name, sparked an international craze, and the dancer Irene Castle became a fashion celebrity when she anticipated the flapper look of the 1920s by nearly a decade. Not only were the latest styles onstage, but advertisements appeared throughout theaters, in programs, and on the curtains, while magazines such as Vogue vied for the rights to publish theatrical costume sketches and Harper s Bazaar enticed readers with photo spreads of actresses in couture. This combination of spectatorship and consumption was a crucial step in the formation of a mass market for consumer goods and the rise of the cult of celebrity. Through historical analysis and dozens of early photographs and illustrations, Schweitzer aims a spotlight at the cultural and economic convergence of the theater and fashion industries in the United States.

About this Item: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY HARPER S BAZAAR - In this candid memoir, featuring a foreword by Barbra Streisand, renowned designer Donna Karan shares intimate details about her lonely childhood, her four-plus decades in the fashion industry, her two marriages, motherhood, and her ongoing quest for self-acceptance and spiritual peace. Donna Karan was born into the fashion business--her father was a tailor, and her mother was a showroom model and Seventh Avenue saleswoman--yet Karan dreamed of becoming a dancer like Martha Graham or a singer like Barbra Streisand. Fashion was her destiny, though. My Journey traces Karan s early days as an intern at Anne Klein, the creation of her Seven Easy Pieces (which forever changed the way working women dressed), and the meteoric rise of her company. Along with juicy industry stories, Karan candidly discusses her difficult mother and traumatic childhood, her turbulent romantic life, all the loved ones she has lost over the years, and the personal awakening that occurred just as she reached the height of professional and financial success. That awakening set Karan down a path of spiritual discovery and self-improvement. From est to Kabbalah, from silent retreats to leech therapy, Karan tried everything to find, as she writes, calm in the chaos. But she also reveals how a chaotic life, fueled by endless curiosity and childlike impulses, helped her design seminal collections season after season for global powerhouse brands Donna Karan New York and DKNY. She also details how she has channeled her creativity (and her urge to solve problems and nurture others) into philanthropic work, particularly her early outspoken advocacy for AIDS awareness and research, and the creation of her Urban Zen Foundation, focusing on integrated healthcare and education as well as preservation of culture, which led to her current efforts in Haiti. Karan s life has been crowded with glamorous characters and adventures around the world. But she sometimes still feels like that awkward teen from Long Island who never fit in--which makes her all the more endearing. Brimming with Karan s infectious energy, My Journey is about much more than the fashion world: It is the story of a young woman whose vision and hard work made her a role model for women everywhere--a woman who dreamed big, fought to have it all, broke the rules, and loved passionately along the way. Praise for My Journey By turns moving, insightful, and hilarious, yet always, always heartfelt . . . When you re a true force of fashion, nothing holds you back. --Vogue When Donna Karan stepped down . . . it was the end of an era, so consider this autobiography her parting gift. . . . Expect a holistic view of the woman behind one of the most influential American labels. --StyleCaster Donna s creativity and passion as a committed philanthropist are matched only by her gift for friendship. Whether she s making the world more beautiful or giving a Haitian artisan the tools to create a sustainable business, Donna has always led with great heart and wonderful humor. --President Bill Clinton What we take for granted often comes from the most revolutionary of sources. In New York in the 1980s, no one was more radical than Donna Karan. She created a way of dressing that was womanly, practical, and empowering. --Anna Wintour An extraordinary personal, professional, and spiritual life . . . defined by Donna s incredible resilience, her inward search for calm in the midst of success, and her insistence on always following her heart. --Arianna Huffington.
