Poems by Carrie Rudzinki
The 1986 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature--the first African to be awarded the prize--writes a highly incisive and deeply affecting re-creation of colonial Nigeria based on a cache of letters he discovered after his father's death.
Few eras are so clearly associated with fashion as the Jazz Age. Clean, slim lines; elegance grounded in simplicity rather than ornament; and styles designed for the active lives of the men and women who wore them—nearly a century later, the styles of the era still thrill us. This book, accompanying an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London, both celebrates Jazz Age fashion and helps us understand its context. While presenting beautiful images of classic works by such designers as Chanel, Patou, Lucile, Lanvin, Vionnet, Hartnell, and Molynuex, worn by stars and stunners like Clara Bow and Louise Brooks, it also shows us how the era’s fashion developed. Martin Pel traces the effects of the end of World War I, the rise of America, rapid changes in the lives and expectations of women, and technological breakthroughs like the introduction of Rayon and zippers. All played a part in the creation of an aesthetic that couldn’t have been farther from the buttoned-down, bustled-up clothing of the preceding generation. A testament to an era that marked the birth of the modern, and whose influence is still felt today, Jazz Age Fashion is an unforgettable document of an unforgettable age.
Everyone wants to be innovative. People do. Organisations do. So do governments. Being innovative is necessary for survival today. Everyone’s understanding of the path to innovation is different. Whether it is the government initiating a public directive like the demonetisation of high value currency notes or a private organisation launching a new product, it is critical is to be human centric. Real value is co-created with the end-user. In a first of its kind, this book uses a fictional story in the backdrop to demonstrate a 3-step structured approach towards innovation. The Probe-Ponder-Prove method or the 3P Method. This first version of the book is like a prototype and is an experiment in itself. Prototypes are made to secure feedback and use such feedback to improve any product or service. Readers are requested to leave their comments and suggestions, to enable an enhanced second version.
