In the past twenty years Brooks has created a unique place for herself in the fashion world. She spent the early years of her career as a photo assistant for Patrick Demarchelier, a “gallerina” at the Gagosian Gallery, and at various fashion posts before finding her dream job as fashion director for Barney’s New York. Along the way—and wearing more than a few of the outfits we’ve all regretted at one point or another—Brooks discovered the key to creating her personal style, combining influences as wide-ranging as childhood prep school, Grateful Dead concerts, contemporary artists, pop culture, and her current home outside of the fashion bubble, a well-worn farmhouse she shares with her family (and a host of animals) in the English countryside.
In Always Pack a Party Dress, Brooks recalls her early career aspirations and explores the evolution of her own personal style along with stories of successes and failures alike, as well as fashion and beauty tips and inspiring photographs. A must-read for high fashion or street style aficionados, and gorgeously produced gift book, Brooks’ shares her expertise and insider view with warm, candid and often witty prose.
