Black Tie and Evening Wear specialist la Bowtique publishes Modern Black Tie book

After seeing a variety of evening wear outfits at the recent Oscars as well as previous award ceremonies this season, it's clear to see that celebrities could do with a read of Modern Black Tie by la Bowtique.

Helping to navigate through the current dilemas faced when invited to a black tie event. I got my copy last month and had a good flick through, firstly enjoying the imagery with accompanying text. I'll need to have a proper sit down to go through it, but chatting with Mickael, he's keen for people to use and abuse the book – taking it with them wherever they go to help with their black tie questions.

Obviously, a lot of prep work should be gone into outfits and Modern Black Tie helps you figure out what's best for you. I for one am completely in agreement that you need a self-tie bow tie to ensure a more natural look. The size of the bow tie will help with proportions and give a great looking drape.
