Discover how French women look so effortlessly good with this lively guide by a Parisian fashion insider.
Bring a Parisian je ne sais quoi to your style, wherever you live.
DRESS LIKE A PARISIAN is a wise and witty guide to finding your personal style, taking inspiration from how real Parisian women dress. With personal stylist and fashion blogger Alois Guinut as your guide, you can explore which colours, shapes and styles work best for you, whatever the occasion. Alois reveals Parisian style secrets, rejects restrictive fashion rules and shares her favourite shops and brands, demonstrating how you can use fashion to enhance your personality rather than shaping your personality to fashion. In the words of the patron saint of Parisian women, Yves St. Laurent, 'fashions fade, style is eternal.'
This book is illustrated with photography shot on the streets of Paris plus illustrations by acclaimed fashion illustrator, Judith van den Hoek, who has worked with Elle, Hermes, Vogue, Prada and Grazia.
Alois Guinut studied fashion at the prestigious Institut Fran ais de la Mode (French Institute of Fashion), founded by former business partner of Yves St. Laurent, Pierre Berge. She has previously worked as a fashion trend forecaster and now runs her own personal shopping and style coaching service, giving advice to women from outside of France on Parisian style and designers. Alois has been featured in Le Figaro and the Observer and interviewed by BBC Radio 4. Her first book, Dress Like a Parisian, was published by Mitchell Beazley in 2018.
