Non-Fiction

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.
