Third time doesn't need to be a charm for Nina Garcia and her beloved book series. Alas, she's giving us more of what we love with a book aimed at today's economically challenged times. The book, titled The Style Strategy: A Less Is More Approach to Staying Chic and Shopping Smart, is destined to offer insight during a fashion recession. Due out in August, and Ruben Toledo will once again lend his illustration skills. After The One Hundred, where yours truly had a cameo, and Nina Garcia's Little Black Book of Style, this one will move to the top of our reading list.
And while we're sort of on the subject . . . Project Runway season five has wrapped. Taking place in LA this time around, the finale show is on the New York Fashion Week schedule in its Friday 9 a.m. time slot. Where and when the new season will air is still in the air, heh, but supposedly the finale show will happen. You may recall, in previous seasons, a handful of contestants show to serve as a decoy so as not to reveal the real winner. But this time, who is presenting will be a secret. So, not only do we not know when and if PR will air, but we'll have no idea who designed what. Confusing much?
