DIY Author to Sign Books at Tory Burch

Radnor High School graduate, Eric Domesek will be signing copies of her book, P.S. I Made This (Abrams Image, $18.95) at the Tory Burch store in King of Prussia on Saturday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The book is a recyclable call to arms:   Domesek defines her book and website as  a movement to re-imagine , re-use, and re-invent. In other words, I see it. I like it. I make it.



To be honest, most of these DIY books get on my nerves. How much jewelry or pocketbooks made out of denim does one woman need? But a quick glance and I realized these aren't as cheesy, made-in-the-garage  looks, but pretty of-the-moment fashions.  And she does everything with five golden tools: scissors, pliers, glue gun, a hammer and a hole puncher.  The book features more than 25 projects - I think the handbags are most interesting -  and they range from Lucite bangles to faux fur vests to studded heels. (I have to admit I'd rather a pair of Louboutins)

Nonetheless, we give props to Domesek who lives in New York City and has styled campaigns for major brands including Anthropologie, Kate Spade, Bloomingdale's and Helmut Lang.  Do you have a fave DIY fashion project?
