Designer Nick Verreos knows about success—and he’s a veritable fashion expert. Verreos has dressed stars from Beyoncé to Carrie Underwood, and his professional accolades are innumerable. Now, in his first book A Passion for Fashion: Achieving Your Fashion Dreams One Thread at a Time (Post Hill Press, August 23rd, 2016), he collaborates with long-time colleague and partner, designer David Paul, to produce the authoritative guide for young fashionistas on how, not to merely survive, but to truly thrive in the fast-paced world of fashion.
With over 20 years of experience in the industry and an extensive knowledge in teaching fashion, Nick has amassed a lifetime of "Tips & Tricks" to help the reader navigate this world. Featuring a foreword by pop icon Tim Gunn, A Passion For Fashion will help young fashionistas maximize their time at design school, as well as prepare them for a life in the industry—and Nick even shares advice on how readers can start their own business.
Along the way, you'll find out how Nick's mantras of "No Should've, Would've, Could've" and "Get The Coffee" can guide you along the path of success. Nick will even dish on his time on Project Runway and share all the lessons he learned from his time on reality TV. If you are thinking of studying fashion, becoming a fashion designer or working in the industry, this book will soon become your indispensable guide to life in fashion.
Nick brings depth of knowledge and experience, historical context, trend relevance, and, frankly, just plain common sense to all that he does. Listening to and observing Nick, I always feel better educated and informed.
