When my daughter looks up at me with her doting eyes, its hard to resist another "Let It Go" sing along in the car. There must be some secret to those songs. My daughter and I do a lot of the normal mother-daughter activities, typically outside of the kitchen. Things like dress up, reading books, arts and crafts, plus a lot of pretend play. I do however try to incorporate activities that we can both truly enjoy like jewelry making and various coloring books.
We recently discovered a series of coloring books by the London-based illustrator Nina Chakrabarti. These incredible books totally capture the hearts of anyone who is interested in fashion whether they are young and aspiring or have experience working in the industry. Nina Chakrabarti studied illustration at Central St. Martins and The Royal College Of Art in London but spent her early life in Calcutta, India. The series are broken into three books based around fashion history and covers all of the various designers from Maison Martin Margiela to 18th-century lace-up boots. There is a recent addition based entirely around shoes. While you and you little ones are adding color, sequins, glitter, or jewel stones to these pages, you may also learn a thing or two about Fashion, and it's glorious evolution.
