Like I Give a Frock

Like I Give a Frock: Fashion Forecasts and Meaningless Misguidance -- Wonder when a baguette became a bag and not just a hunk of bread? (Fendi, 1998.)

In this stylish primer, she tells it like it is: No one looks good in mustard, unless you’re a hot dog. Matching whimsy with brutal honesty, Like I Give a Frock packs fashion illustration and musings into the prettiest package around. Kat Macleod's stunning collages bring Michi's wisdom to life.
