"Nina Garcia's Look Book" Coming In August
New York City, February 1, 2010 – Ellen Archer, President and Publisher of Hyperion, today announced plans to publish a new fashion guide by Nina Garcia, fashion director of Marie Claire and star judge of the hit Lifetime reality series "Project Runway". Titled "NINA GARCIA’S LOOK BOOK: What to Wear for Every Occasion," and featuring original four-color artwork by acclaimed artist Ruben Toledo, this illustrated guide is scheduled for publication in August 2010 under Hyperion’s Voice imprint.
In the book, fashion expert Nina Garcia will answer the universal question all women at one point ask themselves when attending some of life’s most important events: "What should I wear?" In her most practical—yet stylish as ever—project to date, Nina focuses her attention on what every woman needs to know when choosing what to wear to any life event—whether it be a job interview, a first date, or even a parent/teacher conference. From a glamorous, ultra-formal night out to an everyday gathering that calls for casual chic, "NINA GARCIA’S LOOK BOOK" will offer easy-to-read, expert guidance for building that perfect look, every time.
Of the deal, Nina Garcia said, "I’m thrilled to be publishing my new book with Voice. Voice’s focus on women dovetails perfectly with my diverse style and sensibility." Garcia went on to say, "I do believe every woman has called her best friend in a panic and cried, "What should I wear?’ This book will exist so no one panics, and you know what to wear. To everything!"
Barbara A. Jones, Editorial Director of Hyperion and Voice, negotiated the deal with Rene Alegria at Boxing Badger Media, and will edit the book. Voice retains World, first serial, audio, and eBook rights.
Nina Garcia is currently the fashion director of Marie Claire, a star judge of the hit Lifetime reality series Project Runway, and the author of three bestselling books on style that have been reprinted in 13 languages around the world.
