My Wonderful World Of Fashion by Nina Chakrabarti (Laurence King, £12.95)

Customise a kaftan, spice up a sombrero, beautify some bangles, jazz up a jacket… Chakrabarti’s hefty tome is packed with enticing design projects, with several ideas inspired by fashion luminaries like Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs and Elsa Schiaparelli. At the heart of the book is a plethora of hot-pink patterned pages for cutting out or completing. So shocking is that shade of pink, the book even has a note suggesting designers shield their eyes with sunglasses.
