Designer Isabel Toledo is releasing her first memoir, Roots of Style: Weaving Together Life, Love, and Fashion , next month!

According to the press release, Toledo:

"…opens up for the first time about her early childhood in Cuba, growing up in West New York (where she met and fell in love with her future husband, Ruben), studying at FIT and Parsons and interning at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, living in 1970’s New York with friends like nightlife fixtures Joey Arias and Klaus Nomi, showing her first collection on the most shoestring of budgets, and more.

She shares her personal philosophies on design and life, and muses on the ways she’s managed to successfully blend art and commerce, while sacrificing neither.

The book, out March 6th, includes illustrations by her husband, artist Ruben Toledo, who transforms Isabel’s design concepts into fleshed-out illustrations, bringing her words and artistic sensibility to life.

Sounds like a great read!
