I have now added a Shop section to my menu, where you can find fashion books and DVDs. Below is a selection of books and DVDs that I have personally purchased and love. They have served as an endless source of reference that I treasure.

I hope to add more to the collection as time goes on, but for now I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
