Fashion + memoir = art

I have two words for you: Isaac Mizrahi. Even if you go into his memoir knowing very little about the larger-than-life designer himself (raises hand), Mizrahi will win you over instantly with his flair for describing outfits as though each one is the single most important ingredient of a film auteur’s masterpiece. And his wonderfully frenetic narration is the icing on the cake. His story made me curious about other fashion memoirs, and it turns out there’s a pretty rich tradition. Enjoy! —Rachel, Audible editor
