[ MUST READS ] Culture to Catwalk by Kristin Knox


I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this book for over a year and I'm excited to announce its now finally here: Culture to Catwalk - How World Cultures Influence Fashion by American born, London resident and fashion blogger Kristin Knox

I had the honor of meeting Kristin herself last July at my Central Saint Martins degree exhibition in Soho. Having based my own degree project - TRIBE Magazine - on the concept of the traditional inspiring the modern, you could say we had a common interest. After spying Kristin snapping away at pages of my mag, we got to chatting about her project in progress and our shared enthusiasm for ethnic style. 

Released this month by Bloomsbury, Culture to Catwalk looks at both traditional dress and street style around the world and considers its influence on contemporary fashion today. Featuring interviews from some of the industries most esteemed and innovative designers such as Hussein Chalayan and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons, it's going straight to the top of my must read recommendations for ethnic style lovers and, of course, Wandering Threads fans!
