It’s CULTED with your 60-second FASHION BLAST.
In the midst of this warm August, we’ve put together some of our favourite fashion books to read whilst soaking up the sun.
Our first pick is Shoe Dog, a memoir by Nike creator Phil Knight. The book explores how Phil left business school, borrowed $500 from his father and created a company that would go on to be one of the biggest brands in the world.
Speaking of sneakers our next pick is This is Not Fashion: Streetwear Past, Present and Future, which explores “how a long line of subcultural movements have been incorporated into a multi-billion-dollar global industry.”
Next up, we have André Leon Talley’s memoir The Chiffon Trenches. In his book, the former Vogue editor shows us what it’s really like to be one of the world’s most legendary fashion journalists, from his experiences navigating the industry as a Black man, to his relationships with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour.
Our final choice is Fashionopolis: The Price of Fast Fashion and the Future of Clothes by Dana Thomas, which provides a blueprint for how we can achieve a more sustainable future in fashion.
