My Wonderful World of Fashion, Nina Chakrabarti (Laurence King) 

Discovering fashion can be, and should be, fun for all ages.

Tavi Gevinson, the precocious 13-year-old fashion blogger who's pissing off the established, much-older editors, just scored a column in Harper's Bazaar. That sounds too much like adult work. Discovering fashion (not the GAP kind) can be, and should be, fun. London artist Nina Chakrabarti, who studied at the Royal College of Art, brings style back to its childlike preciousness with her gorgeous colouring book. Ideal for any age, either as a keepsake or activity book, the whimsical line drawings salute designers like Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood, fashion history and social anthropology. Colour in a vintage pair of 1984 Tokio Kumagaï happy-face flats, or learn how to tie-dye. A fun ode to creative self-expression, Chakrabarti ends the book with this ageless mantra: "Just remember one thing girls...if it makes you feel good wear it!"

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
