Fab Read: Narciso Rodriguez

Nov 24 2008 - 4:00pm


I can't think of a better time than now to read Narciso Rodriguez [1] ($60), authored by the designer himself and Betsy Berne. After all, he's the designer who created Michelle Obama's controversial red and black dress [2]. Did you know that Narciso was also responsible for the late Carolyn Bessette Kennedy's minimal yet elegant wedding [3] dress? Claire Danes [4], Sarah Jessica Parker [5], and Salma Hayek [6] are also great clients and friends of the designer.

This 272-page book explores the work of one of the great American designers of our time. It takes you behind the scenes of his atelier [7], where he uses his inspirations to sketch and create beautiful clothes. Discover why Anna Wintour once said: "No one but Narciso has ever made a simple line look more stunning."
