I received a copy of Fashion Style Book by Bonnie Marcus to review with my tween daughter (aspiring fashion designer).  All opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

“What’s the answer to a parent with a fashionista in-training who is too young for the glossy magazines but old enough to have opinionated ideas on what she wants to wear?

Parragon Publishing has just released a new fashion book perfect for the fashion forward young girl that exposes her to the fun of fashion, provides a basic history of fashion and even gives her room to sketch her own designs on fashion figures.

Fashion Style Book by Bonnie Marcus is an ideal primer for young fashionistas — girls who love dressing up, wearing interesting accessories like headbands, shoes and hats, and beautiful illustrations Bonnie Marcus, worked for DVF so her tips and advice are expert.

As girls are becoming aware of style younger and younger, parents are looking for a way to indulge their daughter’s creativity while also limiting their exposure to things too adult.”

I was recently contacted about reviewing a fashion book by the Bonnie Marcus Collection.  I jumped on board for my tween daughter Kelly who was absolutely ecstatic about receiving this book.  She currently designs her own Barbie and American Girl doll clothes and hopes to start designing her own clothes in the days ahead.  Let’s just say, this fashion book did not come soon enough…haha!

What does the Fashion Style Book include?

  • Styling Tips
  • Design your own Fashions
  • Shopping Guides
  • Designer Profiles

The cover is very eye-catching and is perfect for the aspiring fashion designer.  I love the girly colors inside and out.

The contents in this book along with illustrations, etc. are absolutely adorable.  My daughter loved that she could sketch her own ideas in the “Design It” section.  She is already pulling many ideas and concepts together.  She has taken sewing and fashion design classes and intends to start a blog, then a YouTube Channel, then a website.  So proud of her.  She took a “Kidpreneur” class this past semester which has also helped her shape and mold her fashion ideas. She’s only 11.  Wow, I wish this type of stuff was available to me when I was younger.  Sign of the advancing times for sure.
