Fab Read: Fashion Illustrations by Fashion Designers

Whether they admit it or not, everyone loves sneaking a peek at something they're not supposed to see.

Fashion historian Laird Borrelli's new book Fashion Illustration by Fashion Designers ($27) facilitates just that, by giving us a look at designer's sketches that aren't meant for public consumption.
