The Perfect Hostess Gift

Ever wish you could get style advice from 400 of America’s top fashion, jewelry, and accessory designers, including our very own Rachel Zoe? Well that wish has been granted, thanks to the Council Of Fashion Designers Of America. Their beautiful new book features quotes and musings on everything from breaking into the fashion industry to falling in love, from the likes of Pamela Love, Derek Lam and Tommy Hilfiger. You’ll never guess the essentials they keep stocked in their studios…

The artfully curated book has a foreword by Diane Von Furstenberg and an introduction by Jessica Alba. With designers revealing everything from their favorite muses (Rachel’s are Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot), to their top shopping destinations, this is sure to be the fashion-lover’s gift this summer. We recommend stocking up on a few copies for graduation and hostess gifts.
