Vogue Colouring Book
By Iain R. Webb
A colouring book for grown-ups from Vogue, the world's foremost fashion magazine. Iain R. Webb, award-winning writer and curator, has put together his own hand-drawn art works, each inspired by the iconic images from British Vogue in the 1950s, for you to colour in.
This was an era of haughty elegance and hourglass figures, when women wore hats and gloves, certainly wore nothing twice and ensembles were perfectly coordinated for the ultimate vision of chic. Ballgowns, cocktail dresses, smart suits and dramatic accessories were designed by the likes of Chanel, Herbert de Givenchy, Balenciaga and Christian Dior, just some of the designers who have inspired our contemporary fashion designers.
Colouring books for grown-ups are all the rage. An activity in which to unleash creative flashes but also as a get-away-from-it-all means of relaxing or to practise mindfulness. Now you can be the creator of colours for these fabulous 1950s fashions.
The author has also included interesting and entertaining anecdotes and period fashion style tips.
