    Title: Woman I Wanted to Be
    Author: VON FURSTENBERG DIANE

    One of the most influential, admired, and colorful women of our time: fashion designer and philanthropist Diane von Furstenberg tells the most personal stories from her life, about family, love, beauty and business: "It's so good, you'll want to take notes" ("People").
    Diane von Furstenberg started with a suitcase full of jersey dresses and an idea of who she wanted to be--in her words, "the kind of woman who is independent and who doesn't rely on a man to pay her bills." She has since become that woman, establishing herself as a major force in the fashion industry, all the while raising a family, maintaining that "my children are my greatest creation."
    In "The Woman I Wanted to Be," "an intriguing page-turner filled with revelations" ("More"), von Furstenberg reflects on her extraordinary life--from her childhood in Brussels to her days as a young, jet-set princess, to creating the dress that came to symbolize independence and power for generations of women. With remarkable honesty and wisdom, von Furstenberg mines the rich territory of what it means to be a woman. She opens up about her family and career, overcoming cancer, building a global brand, and devoting herself to empowering other women. This "inspiring, compelling, deliciously detailed celebrity autobiography...is as much of a smashing success as the determined, savvy, well-intentioned woman who wrote it" ("Chicago Tribune").

    Title: Women from the Ankle Down
    Author: BERGSTEIN RACHELLE

    What is it about a pair of shoes that so enchants women of all ages, demographics, political affiliations, and style tribes? Part social history, part fashion record, part pop-culture celebration,Women from the Ankle Downseeks to answer that question as it unfolds the story of shoes in the twentieth century.

    The tale begins in the rural village of Bonito, Italy, with a visionary young shoemaker named Salvatore Ferragamo and ends in New York City with a fictional socialite and trendsetter named Carrie Bradshaw. Along the way it stops in Hollywood, where Judy Garland first slipped on her ruby slippers; New Jersey, where Nancy Sinatra heard something special in a song about boots; and the streets of Manhattan, where a transit-worker strike propelled women to step into cutting-edge athletic shoes. Fashion aficionado Rachelle Bergstein shares the stories behind these historical moments, interweaving the design innovations and social changes that gave each one its lasting significance and appeal.

    Bergstein shows how the story of shoes is the story of women, told from the ankle down. Beginning with the well-heeled suffragettes in the 1910s, women have fought for greater freedom and mobility, a struggle that exploded in the 1960s with the women's liberation movement and culminated in the new millennium with our devotion to personal choice. Featuring interviews with designers, historians, and cultural experts, and a cast of real-life characters, from Marilyn Monroe to Jane Fonda, from Gwen Stefani to Manolo Blahnik,Women from the Ankle Downis a lively, compelling look at the evolution of modern women and the fashion that reflects'and has shaped'their changing lives.

    Title: World According to Karl
    Author: NAPIAS JEAN-CHRISTOPHE

    Lagerfeld, "fashion's favorite enigma," has been at the forefront of global fashion for more than a half century, and in that time has never ceased to fascinate the public. While simultaneously running Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous fashion house, he has consistently reinvented trends on the catwalk and in the street. His iconic black-and-white uniform propagates the carefully constructed air of mystery that surrounds the star, yet despite being famously private, he is one of the most recognizable men in the world. Lagerfeld the man remains elusive: Vogue described him as the "master of reinvention" and he describes himself as "a caricature of himself." He has been the source of controversy many times over, yet his popularity remains unflagged. Only "The Kaiser" himself can get away with owning 300 iPods or having two personal maids and a Twitter account for his cat because, as he acknowledges, "I can do whatever I want." In this attractive volume, Karl Lagerfeld imparts his personal impressions on everything. His aphorisms and quotable declarations are in turns humorous, acerbic, insightful, or misleadingly definitive. Defining the world as he sees it--through the lens of fashion, Chanel, love, life, black sunglasses, luxury, books, and Karl himself--this book pays homage to the brilliance of Lagerfeld's mind, his turn of phrase, and his visionary verdicts on fashion, humanity, art, and the world in general.

    Karl Lagerfeld is a modern master of couture. He is also famously outspoken: his wise, surprising statements pop up like offbeat news flashes. This collection of quotations pays homage to the legendary éminence grise of the fashion world. Lagerfeld's pronouncements - on fashion, women, art, politics, love, and life high and low - are famously oracular, seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes and sages around the world. Created with the full approval of the designer himself, this cornucopia of Lagerfeld's maxims is required reading for us all today as we negotiate the trickiest curves of modern life. Cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, sometimes shocking, Lagerfeld's 'bons mots' are always impossible to ignore.

    Title: Yohji Yamamoto
    Author: YAMAMOTO YOHJI

    The definitive monograph on the complete work of Yohji Yamamoto-one of fashion's most transformative designers working today and widely acknowledged as a master of postwar fashion design. Since the early '80s, Yohji Yamamoto's groundbreaking silhouettes and innovative design aesthetic have propelled him to the highest rank of the international avant-garde. Distinguished by his antifashion approach, Yamamoto changed the face of contemporary fashion, radically transforming it with asymmetrical and highly conceptual designs partly inspired by the techniques of traditional Japanese kimonos. His vision came as a refreshing contrast to the power suits and brightly clad fashions of the time, forcing a reconsideration of the future direction of fashion. Yamamoto launched his first collection in 1977 in Tokyo and followed this success with the debut of his experimental and critically celebrated Yohji Yamamoto label in Paris in 1981. This luxuriously bound book explores all the major themes in his thirty years of counter-fashion design. Illustrated with photographs by Craig McDean, Inez & Vinoodh, Max Vadukul and Nick Knight, each chapter elaborates on a particular theme-his sartorial philosophy, influential extensions into scenography, runway shows, monographic exhibitions, and costume design-and is anchored by an essay or interview that lends crucial insight to the story of Yohji Yamamoto, one of the most enigmatic and iconoclastic fashion designers of our time.

    Author: CHOPRA DEEPAK & KAFATOS MENAS

    Now a New York Times Bestseller!& & "A riveting and absolutely fascinating adventure that will blow your mind wide open!" --Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi.& Deepak Chopra joins forces with leading physicist Menas Kafatos to explore some of the most important and baffling questions about our place in the world.&
    &
    What happens when modern science reaches a crucial turning point that challenges everything we know about reality? In this brilliant, timely, and practical work, Chopra and Kafatos tell us that we've reached just such a point. In the coming era, the universe will be completely redefined as a "human universe" radically unlike the cold, empty void where human life is barely a speck in the cosmos.
    &
    You Are the Universe& literally means what it says--each of us is a co-creator of reality extending to the vastest reaches of time and space. This seemingly impossible proposition follows from the current state of science, where outside the public eye, some key mysteries cannot be solved, even though they are the very issues that define reality itself:
    &
    What Came Before the Big Bang?
    Why Does the Universe Fit Together So Perfectly?
    Where Did Time Come From?
    What Is the Universe Made Of?
    Is the Quantum World Linked to Everyday Life?
    Do We Live in a Conscious Universe?
    How Did Life First Begin?
    &
    "The shift into a new paradigm is happening," the authors write. "The answers offered in this book are not our invention or eccentric flights of fancy. All of us live in a participatory universe. Once you decide that you want to participate fully with mind, body, and soul, the paradigm shift becomes personal. The reality you inhabit will be yours either to embrace or to change." What these two great minds offer is a bold, new understanding of who we are and how we can transform the world for the better while reaching our greatest potential.

Tovar is hungry for a world where bodies are valued equally, food is free from moral judgment, and you can jiggle through life with respect. In concise and candid language, she delves into unlearning fatphobia, dismantling sexist notions of fashion, and rejecting diet culture's greatest lie: that fat people need to wait before beginning their best lives.

    On January 21, 1971, couturier Yves Saint Laurent presented his Spring-Summer haute couture collection.

    Author: SAVIGNON JEROMINE

    The name of Yves Saint Laurent, one of the great fashion designers of the twentieth century, evokes the now-iconic looks he helped popularize as part of the modern woman's wardrobe: the Le Smoking tuxedo jacket, the pea coat, the Mondrian dress, the jumpsuit. But seven years after Saint Laurent's death, the man himself remains an enigma and a source of fascination (two Yves Saint Laurent biopics were released in 2014). In "Yves Saint Laurent's Studio: Mirror and Secrets," the first book to be published by the Fondation Pierre Berge with Yves Saint Laurent, fashion historian Jeromine Savignon invites the reader into the designer's studio, revealing Saint Laurent's approach to fashion and design. Illustrated with more than 40 previously unpublished photographs, this volume offers a fresh, behind-the-scenes glimpse at the work of this iconic fashion designer.A precocious talent, Yves Saint Laurent (1936-2008) started work at the venerable fashion house of Christian Dior at the age of 18. He started his own design house in 1961 with his partner Pierre Berge. Saint Laurent was one of the first designers to hire nonwhite models, and the first to lend his name to a ready-to-wear line while maintaining his haute couture business. He became the first designer to be honored with a Costume Institute retrospective at The Metropolitan Museum of Art during his lifetime, with a 1983 show organized by Diana Vreeland, who called him the "Pied Piper of fashion," because "whatever he does, women of all ages, from all over the world, follow."

    Asia has long fascinated European artists. The gradual arrival of art objects and textiles from the Orient were inexhaustible sources of inspiration for painters, sculptors and of course couturiers. Yves Saint Laurent was no exception. He proposed both a literal and imaginary vision of Asia, based on a solid knowledge of its history, culture and arts, as evidenced by his personal library and the collection of works of art that he brought together with Pierre Bergé. Yves Saint Laurent_s exhibition Dreams of the Orient brings together some fifty models, accompanied by original drawings, jewelry and Asian objects that will demonstrate the process of creating clothes while establishing a visual link with their sources of inspiration. Objects from the Musée Guimet in Paris (Asian Arts Museum) and the Samuel Myers collection will be on display alongside the designer_s creations
