Colouring books for adults are everywhere these days. According to The New York Times “coloring is therapeutic, fosters creativity and reaps benefits associated with meditation.” Stores are offering colouring books on a vast array of topics, but today I’m bringing you a round-up of fashion-themed ones:
- American and British Vogue both have their own colouring book.
- There are also Vintage Vogue Detachable Postcards.
- Most fashion eras are represented, from Renaissance Fashions to the Roaring Twenties, Art Deco, and 1950’s and 1960’s designs.
- There are colouring books featuring individual designers and illustrators, like Erté and Alphonse Mucha.
- If you like to colour in images with small details, then have a look at Vintage Hand Fans or the Liberty of London Colouring Book.
- These two books showcasing Japanese kimono designs also look beautiful.
- Gothic and Steampunk fans are also catered for.
- The Advanced Style ladies have their own colouring book too.
- And, of course, Paris Street Style gets its very own book.
Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments, or post images of finished coloured-in pages on the forum.

The recent posts on the lack of plus size and petite fashion reminded Ginger of two posts by Fashion-Incubator: What is a size break? and Grading is not morphing. Ginger adds that the technical challenges involved in a new set of sizes are much vaster than she realized.
