Learn the ABC's of what we wear! � Maria Carluccio's playful fashion alphabet celebrates the fun of getting dressed up-or simply getting dressed! From everyday outfits to outrageous ensembles-from a sophisticated bow tie to a silly costume to a warm wool hat-this vibrant celebration of what we wear from A to Z invites everyone to get creative and embrace their own unique style.
Maria Carluccio grew up turning bath towels into ball gowns, then enlisting her little brother as a model for her fashion creations. Since then, Maria's love of color, design, and dress up has translated into a career as a textile and product designer and an award-winning illustrator. These days she's more inclined toward jeans than ball gowns, but she still brings the same playfulness and creativity to her art that she did to her childhood fashion experiments. She lives in Dobbs Ferry, New York, with her daughter, dog, and cat, who - much like her brother - make great models.
