Fashion Now! is our tactile and audio style extravaganza, kicking off with the birth of the teenager in 1950s and the now iconic go-to outfit of denim jeans, leather jacket and white t-shirt.
Here’s what Fadzie, teen library member, had to say:
“I was completely adsorbed and it made me feel like I was actually there, which in my opinion is what all good books should be able to do. I also liked that the book gives you advice on how to create the different styles using the clothes you would usually buy.”
The book’s atmospheric short audio guides, tactile images and picture scrapbook are full of style stories, youth culture, key trends and a few funny fashion flops. There’s a varied pop, disco, rock, punk and hip hop music soundtrack and style guides pick out the key looks and garments to help you put together outfits plus there’s advice on body shape, colour and lots of inspiration to help you explore your own style.
