Review: Yves Saint Laurent Colouring Book

I’m not generally a big fan of colouring books, but this gorgeous little book filled with fashion flair is definitely an exception. Filled with haute couture sketches by fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent, this colouring book will inspire any little girl (or not so little girl) with a love of fashion.
The book is quite small, only 13 x 18 cm, so it is best suited for children who have developed reasonable fine motor skills and who are likely use the sketches and suggestions to inspire their own designs.

For those who prefer opportunities for creative drawing rather than simply colouring in, the book also features half completed designs where readers are encouraged to add their own details and colour schemes.
From formal wear, wedding dresses and Moroccan inspired tunics to dancers, harlequins and Oriental robes, this fashionable colouring book is sure to stir the imagination of the budding fashion designer in your home, just as it has in ours.
