AGINS AT IT AGAIN: Teri Agins has another fashion book in the works. The author of “The End of Fashion,” (1999) and freelance writer for The Wall Street Journal has just signed a book deal with the Gotham imprint of Penguin books. Her nonfiction book, which is billed as a “behind-the-scenes exposé,” will focus on the rise of fast fashion and celebrity designers in the multibillion fashion industry. The book is scheduled to be published in early 2014.
Agins noted that she conducted 140 interviews for her first book, which explored how marketing changed the apparel business. While writing her new book, she plans to continue her freelance career writing for the Journal, Vogue, Town & Country, O, the Oprah Magazine and Essence.
