Amazon - Isabel Toledo: Fashion from the Inside Out by Valerie Steele and Patricia Mears

The First Mom is a fitting sartorial muse for all contemporary women: mothers and daughters, friends and mentors alike. Lucky for us, on the occasion of Barack Obama's Presidential Inauguration, Michelle put the spotlight on a previously under-the-radar designer: Isabel Toledo. Celebrate any and all the women you admire with a trip to the Fashion Institute of Technology for Isabel Toledo's upcoming exhibit (June 17 - September 26, 2009) and/or a copy of the designer's new book (to be published July 2009.)
