This is a new take on coloring books for those who want to relax with original fashion images. Anyone who enjoys fashion (and who doesn't!) the coloring book FASHION TRENDS: The London Look of the '60's is a value-packed 85 pages of coloring and escaping into a stress-free zone with over 150 original drawings of London's outrageously trendy scene during the 'Swinging Sixties'. Creator Leigh Rudd says, "We did not hold back here! We were going for high impact fun at a great price! We want our coloring fashionistas to be entertained and distracted." There are detailed drawings of the famous epicenter of fashion in the 60's which was King's Road in Chelsea London. There are no rules about color choices or staying in the lines. Just get a set of colored pencils and let your mind go wild!" And this fashionista coloring book is a first! It is a guide to Fashion Forecasting 101 -- whether it is for a career or for yourself. Since Rudd is the original fashion forecaster in 1968, this is the perfect vehicle for guiding a fashion devotee into this world. It provides imaginative images of all the inspiration and work tools. Color these drawings: sketch pads, mood boards, fabric and color swatches; art supplies and huge catch-all tote bags to carry when you head out to research at museums and galas. Not to be missed. Rudd gives homage to cutting edge Chelsea in London and designers like Mary Quant and Ossie Clark. The main character is JORDAN PARKER (a feisty alter-ego of herself IN 2016) who hosts the coloring book as a young fashion forecaster. Drawings are by Brittany Morganti. WE RECOMMEND USING ONLY COLORED PENCILS.

About the Author
Leigh Rudd, fashion forecaster and author, was the CEO and founder of the fashion forecasting publishing Company IM International from 1968 - 1988 with offices throughout the world. She now describes herself as an "imaginative creator" driven to developing new paths of innovation for herself and others. She says, "I am truly happiest when I am pioneering a fresh idea. And right now I am introducing my time-traveling character Jordan Parker who is a feisty Fashion Forecaster and an alter ego of myself - but in today's world. I guess you could say I have the spirit of the entrepreneur." She goes on to say, "And the idea of sharing the wild London lifestyle is a thrill for me. My career started early. Fashion began for me when I was a ten-year-old child designing wardrobes for paper dolls. In my spare time I would conjure up trailblazing creations: hair décor out of sequins and braided ribbons; patchwork skirts from thrift shop outfits cut up and sewn back together; little cocktail hats made of old felt, plumes and glitz; also belts and bags made with feathers and brooches; and wool jackets I'd decorate with huge old-fashioned buttons and outrageous trims. Family and friends made fun until they noticed these creations would be featured a year later in some fashion magazine. Well, you get the idea. It was the quirky beginning of a life-long fashion journey, an international company and an industry." Her web site is www.leighruddfashion.com
