Antonio Donnanno returns to children’s clothing patterns, expanding on previous work and including numerous new garments to dress kids for any occasion. Once again, this text is the result of attentive studies and ongoing updates to measurements and the changing needs that this industry is known for. The author wanted to create a method similar to that for adults, simple yet precise and clear. All categories of garments which are currently made and sold were the object of close study: from gowns to rompers, skirts to trousers and jumpsuits, casual clothes to carnival costumes. In the words of the author: “Each age range comes with models which combine comfort, beauty and style. I hope this text will help simplify the work of those in this industry or of those who just wish to make garments for their family members.”

You’ve often heard the proverb „You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression” And why? Because it’s true. Appearance counts! And the appearance of a gentleman is his stage. In A Gentleman’s Look Book, menswear and style expert Bernhard Roetzel presents stylish combinations fit for every occasion – from elegant to casual chic. For this book, the author has summoned the best dressed men from the fashion scene to share their favorite looks. What does a man wear to a business-lunch, over the weekend, or on special occasions? From the tie to the shoe, from the shirt to the tuxedo – everything a man needs for a stylish appearance is shown in exquisite color photos and diverse, elegant outfits. In the business look, the gentleman appears in a classic and formal outfit, which has many advantages. Bernhard Roetzel: “The classic look is timeless, independent of fashions and trends so to say. It is however timeless in the sense that you can wear classic clothing at any age.” The look of the “casual gentleman” is well suited for day-to-day life. On the one hand, the wearer demonstrates timeless taste; on the other, he shows himself to be finely dressed, despite a certain casualness. The wardrobe for festive occasions shows the gentleman in striking, yet discreet elegance. Bernhard Roetzel, born 1966, is a book author, journalist and one of the best experts of classical gentleman’s style in Germany. He has written several books on the subject and regularly writes for German and international magazines. In the textile industry, he is a sought-after speaker, trainer and consultant

Fifty major fashion designers are profiled in this book with fullcolor spreads that showcase their most memorable creations. Red carpet regulars such as Armani, Prada, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana are included, as well as the classic clothiers Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfield, and Oscar de la Renta.
