Giveaway #5 - The Fashion Book


Today marks the last of my week of giveaways! If you follow the Couture Allure Facebook page, you know I've been downsizing my personal research library over the past couple of months.  Most of the vintage books are being offered for sale in my SewHallie Etsy shop, and more will be added this week.  However, there are several that I want to give away as gifts to my devoted followers here on the blog.  I know I neglected you last month, and I hope these gifts will make up for it!

The winner of yesterday's giveaway of "The Collectible Barbie Doll" is Karen in Milwaukee!

Congratulations Karen!  I'll be in touch by email shortly to make arrangements for shipping your book.  And thank you to everyone who entered! 

Today's giveaway is the "The Fashion Book" published by Phaidon Press in 1999.  This little book measures just 5" x 6 1/2" but is chock-a-block full of 519 pages of information and photos about 500 fashion designers, photographers and models spanning 150 years of the history of fashion.

This is a little encyclopedia of information, arranged in alphabetical order from James Abbe to Zoran.

Each entry gives you one photo and biographical information.

This is a soft cover book and is in excellent condition with just some minor edge wear and marks to the covers.  I'm sure you'll find it useful and interesting!

This giveaway will run for 24 hours only and the winner will be chosen at 7am Eastern Saturday, February 16, 2013.  I'm not going to make you jump through hoops either.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog.  If you don't have a blogger profile, please leave your email address in your comment.  I'll choose the winner via the random number generator tomorrow morning and will contact the winner via email for shipping information. 

Important!  If you live in the US, I will ship this book to you via Media Mail at no cost.  Unfortunately, due to the recent postal rate increases, if you live outside of the US, I must ask that you pay for the shipping, which could run anywhere from $12.00 - $18.00 depending upon where you live.  If you live outside the US and are not willing to pay the shipping, please do not enter this giveaway!
