Are you looking for that perfect Christmas gift or stocking filler? Well, how about a book for your fashion-loving friend, colleague or family member?

The how-to book will help you get your product on the body or in the hands of a celebrity, connect with stylists, publicists and other handlers who have access to the stars, avoid awkward product-celebrity match-ups and find the perfect person for your brand, and execute a celebrity marketing campaign for next to nothing.

New African Fashion: Helen Jennings has written a book on African fashion that bypasses all the clichés about Africa and looks at the continent as a source of fashion inspiration that is home to a slew of beautiful models like Georgie Baddiel and Ajak Deng. Helen also looks at why Africa is so popular on the international catwalks. Profiling popular designers such as Duro Olowu, Jewel by Lisa, Black Coffee and Eric Raisina, the book explores the myriad of reasons why African fashion is having its moment in the sun.

Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life: Author Justine Picardie peels away the layers of romance and myth surrounding the legend of Coco Chanel, revealing the true history of the incredible woman who shaped modern fashion and created an empire of haute couture. Picardie’s unprecedented research illuminates Chanel’s path from little-known seamstress to the aristocracy of style in this stunning look at the fashion icon, illustrated with more than sixty colour and black-and-white images.
