Fashion Manifesto will forever change your relationship to clothes and fashion. Refuse to be a fashion slave and start thinking creatively about your own outfit! Renew your wardrobe and your style, but without having to shop! Master the seven essential fashion rules for streamlining your closet and explore over fifty different ways to reinvent garments.
Equal parts memoir, manifesto, and how-to, this book chronicles the experiences of Sofia Hedström, as she subjected her overweight wardrobe to a detox and stopped clothes-shopping for one year. Her mission was to become fashion fit, and together with well-known photographer Anna Schori, she found a thriving frugal fashion movement and discovered the secrets of both young fashionistas and expert masters of style from around the world. Hedström proves that we can all be “style smart”!
