Writer, media personality, and iconic window dresser Simon Doonan worked for Diana Vreeland at the Costume Institute before joining Barneys New York in 1986, where for nearly three decades he was the creative director behind the store’s legendary displays. He is a judge for the NBC show Making It, and has been published in the New York Observer, The Daily Beast, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, and Slate, among others.
Through his unconventional wisdom and singular storytelling, Simon Doonan is the ideal instructor to help readers find – and then flaunt – their own creative style and vision.
With provocative wit, he walks us through every aspect of our lives: fashion, socializing, love, work, decor, and family, while staying true to who we are even when our culture conspires to pull us away from our center.
This is a survival guide for the new decade – literary GPS that promises to bring us back to ourselves.
