A fun mini edition of the first book to embrace the whole of the UK and its creative influence on international fashion, this will appeal to industry professionals, students, and anyone with an interest in fashion. Inspirational and informative, this book focuses on the British designers who, since 2000, have made their influence resonate globally: designers such as Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan, Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano, Julien Macdonald, Giles Deacon, Matthew Williamson, and Paul Smith. The chapter on each designer defines visually how Britishness informs their work, showing final collections, process work, and studio space. Text in the form of questions and answers or running text illustrates each designer's British influence and distinct style.
For over 220 years, my family and I have done everything in our power to let truth come out: the son of Louis XVI co-founder of the United-States, Louis XVII, didn't die in the Temple prison, contrary to what all successive Governments, and Bourbon and Orleans ruling families, have been trying to make you believe, going as far as attempted murders on the person of Louis XVII, and poisoning or slaughtering people, doctors and nobles faithful to our cause, who were willing and able to act as witnesses in favor of the child's survival and of his legal ties with the royal family. Even nowadays, still using insidious means, although with brutality, some of our cousins keep pursuing their undermining job. In times and countries where monarchy still exists, we could see that they might have some interest in doing so. Aside for the multitude of proofs accumulated over the centuries, even though a number of documents have purposefully -disappeared-, progress in DNA research allows us beyond any doubt to prove that we are the great-grand-sons of Louis XVII. Everything is laid down in writing in this book.
Just see it for yourself.

Katya “Butterfly” Amerson lived her life as the cloistered daughter of the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy. Always correct, always guarded, and never inciting a scandal, she’s had to be the perfect woman. What she really wants is to blow-up her castle and find a life free from inhibition and full of passion. A chance encounter at a dark club in Dubai gives her just the wildness she craves, if only for one night. Xavier “Heim” Spencer lives for being a SEAL.
Dangerous missions, high-stakes assignments, and pleasurable nights all blend together in an adrenaline-laced life he’s addicted to. Until the face women who parade through his bed blur into sandy horizons and forgotten moments. One beauty challenges him to accept someone just as scrappy as he is, and more dangerous to boot. Then she is taken. Katya’s disappearance, and the reality of who she is to the military community, he never expected. Nor the lengths he would be willing to go to get her back. Now it’s a race against time to save the woman who snatched his heart right out of his chest as terrorists threaten to kill a prisoner for every day the government doesn’t meet their demands. But SEALs don’t break. They improvise, adapt, and overcome. And Heim risks it all, for his heart and his country.
Taking an uncommon look at God's creation, this book will engage both children and adults with its combination of scientific accuracy, wide-eyed wonder, and subtle humor. Joanne De Jonge here presents a wealth of little-known facts about some fascinating creatures that we often overlook. All Nature Sings discusses the nature no one actually sings about.
Although we generally don't see the slimy slug, the hairy tarantula, or the slithering snake as "nice" nature, these creatures also sing God's praises in their own way -- we simply don't know their song. But after looking through Joanne's eyes at worms, pill bugs, gerbils, yaks, and other interesting animals, readers will see anew how all of nature does indeed sing.
