We’re on the fence about how we feel re: resolutions. What with their high failure rate and all. But one thing that is always a constant for us is reading, reading and more reading, regardless of the date on the calendar. With that in mind, we were thrilled to hear about a new book by Cuban-born designer Isabel Toledo. Even though she has been on the radar of fashion insiders and stylephiles for 20+ years, fashion civilians may have first seen her work (that sublime yellow-green dress and coat ensemble) on Michelle Obama at her husband’s inauguration. In her new book, Roots of Style: Weaving Together Life, Love and Fashion, Toledo lays bare her design process, her renegade attitude towards the industry (she doesn’t present at Fashion Week) and gives advice to women about how to cement their own personal style. As if that isn’t enough, her equally divine husband, artist Ruben Toledo, provides illustrations of his wife’s iconic designs. Roots of Style: Weaving Together Life, Love and Fashion will be released March 6.
