Finally, a break for those who burnt their youths away relentless trying to study fashion trends. This humorous little book is a delightful treat, featuring some of the most ourageous ideas that can incoporated into clothing, thus creating a fantastical and somewhat, hysterical parade of fashion faux pas that brings tears of joy, excitement and maybe even shock. The details are described in a way so realistic that transformed these imaginative fashion fads and trends into reality. The readers will be whiskered away to a dream-like land where all fashion rules and regulations are disregarded and all that is left is fun and frivolity. Finally - A gorgeous edition of Alice in Wonderland for the fashionable minds.
