Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Repurposing clothing is a hot topic—clothing swaps are everywhere, as are books and television shows with advice on how to "shop your closet" to refresh your wardrobe. French designer Le Berre shows readers how to add simple embellishments and details to basic wardrobe staples to give them a second life. The garments are divided by personality type ("Boho," "Jet Set," "Retro," and "Diva"). Le Berre's designs are best worn by the young and slim (think leggings, miniskirts, and tank tops), but some of the ideas she presents could easily be incorporated into any woman's wardrobe.
