Personally, currently I am reading Valerie Steele's "50 year of fashion". I met this wonderful lady at Mercedes-Benz fashion week Kiev, she  is director and chief curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology - FIT. (Thanks must go to the organizers of MBFW-Kiev, as they invited this very special woman to their event) where I get little souvenier from her, as she signed on my book...
