The Business of Fashion on Instagram

The Business of Fashion on Instagram

An essential daily resource for fashion creatives, executives and entrepreneurs all over the world.

It takes a village to stage a successful #fashion shoot, but not all professions always get caught in the spotlight. The creativity of #nail artists often gets overlooked for example. In 1986, Marion Newman started her own nail salon. 10 years later, out of the blue, she received a phone call asking to help out on a studio shoot with Nick Knight, Lucinda Chambers and Kate Moss, which was for a British Vogue cover. She went on to collaborate regularly with Knight, the hairdresser Sam McKnight and make-up artist Val Garland   groundbreakers all   and worked on campaigns for #Dior and M.A.C., for which she eventually designed a collection. Her work is now the subject of a new book - but, it is more than a pretty book of pictures.  Nailed it  is valuable for the technical information it contains, from advice on tool kits to a directory of suppliers. 
 
If you are still looking for the perfect #summerread, discover also some of the other finds from BoF columnist Colin McDowell, as he offers his biannual list of book recommendations   featuring a mix of striking visual anthologies and engaging deep-dives into fashion, beauty and design's most influential figures. So, whether you're looking to lose yourself in the tumultuous life story of Yves Saint Laurent or learn about London's swinging retail scene of the 1950s and 60s, there's an option for you.
