Hailed as the "designer's designer," Isabel Toledo is known
for her impeccable handmade construction and understanding
of how her pieces make a woman feel-a unique approach
considered a lost art in the midst of the everevolving world
of fashion. Although her pieces are sold in select high- end
retailers, her work has made national and global headlines,
most notably when Michelle Obama wore her unforgettable
lemongrass dress at the presidential inauguration. Although
becoming more visible and accessible, Isabel remains a very
private designer, paving her own way with her own rules,
including choosing not to show at Fashion Week.
In Roots of Style, Isabel opens up for the first time about
her life, process, inspiration, and experiences while
imparting her guiding principles for any woman to sharpen
her sense of style. Isabel's equally artistic husband, Ruben
Toledo-an institution in his own right- transforms her
designs from concepts to fleshedout illustrations, bringing
Isabel's words and artistic sensibility to life with
beautiful and visually stunning drawings.
