Make Life Beautiful


Make biscuits with Manolo Blahnik or customise your bike with Paul Smith.

Let Charlotte Olympia put a spring in your step and turn a magazine into a millinery with Stephen Jones.

Fashion a Bella Freud jumper or a Topshop Tee, make a Fabergé egg and dress up like Henry Holland.

Let Michael Howells and Christian Lacroix help you create a drama and Nick Knight a cup of tea.

Turn on your imagination and MAKE LIFE BEAUTIFUL.

MAKE LIFE BEAUTIFUL provides a unique glimpse into some of style’s most creative minds with full-colour pictures throughout and a personal introduction from the designers to each of the projects.

Craft has never been so fashionable.
