"I did not have three thousand pairs of shoes. I had one thousand and sixty."--Imelda Marcos In recent years shoes have become objects of fanatical devotion, as covetable designs have gained iconic status and shoe designers have become heroes of popular culture. From Christian Louboutin's signature red sole and the Manolo Blahnik heels that helped to define Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw to the eco-friendly footwear of the future, shoes are now a fashion statement all their own. Is there such a thing as a leading shoe fashion anymore? The silhouettes, colors, and details on the feet of models and in the pages of fashion magazines used to be the ultimate in style, but they no longer represent all fashion footwear any more than haute couture represents all fashionable clothing. Renowned fashion specialist Jonathan Walford recounts the fascinating history of more than 350 leading women's shoe designers and manufacturers who have shaped modern footwear over the last sixty years. A rich array of sketches, photographs, and advertisements highlight superlative craftsmanship and lasting trends. Featuring designs by Bally, Beverly Feldman, Camper, Charles Jourdan, Chie Mihara, Christian Louboutin, Ferragamo, Herman Delman, Jimmy Choo, Joan & David, Kenneth Cole, Manolo Blahnik, Maud Frizon, Roger Vivier, Rupert Sanderson, and Sergio Rossi.

A Textile Designer's Sketchbook

All textile designs start with an idea sketch, which is later put into a repeat.  A textile designer knows that the fabric will be silkscreened in a limited number of colors.  So a textile sketch usually includes the all-important separations between colors, making it better for coloring than other kinds of sketches. This adult coloring book offers you an insider's glimpse into the archives of a working textile designer, where beauty meets industry and both flourish.   Yolanda Fundora has been licensing her designs to the quilting industry for over 20 years. She is also a fine artist, illustrator, quilt designer, and graphic designer. You can see more of her work at www.urbanamishfabrics.com and www.TowardADigitalAesthetic.com.
