For years, Iwasa (known to her fans as Cat Prin, Tailor of a Cat), has shown off and sold her unique feline fashions online. Now, with the help of Vice Books, Iwasa's work has been immortalized in book form in the just-released Fashion Cats.

The book features 60 of Iwasa's designs, or haute "cature" pieces, which are expertly modeled by her two very well-behaved cats, Princess Prin and Prince Kotaro. It also includes a ton of other treats for Cat Prin fans, like bios on Iwasa, Prin and Kotaro; Vice magazine's original 2008 interview with Iwasa; special text from the cats themselves; a diary by Iwasa; and projects for the budding cat fashion designer.
"Everyone was going crazy for the book," says Vice associate editor Ellis Jones, who co-edited Fashion Cats. "Cute cats dressed up and they're looking at the camera so seriously. It's so cute, it's almost absurd."
Fashion Cats is on sale now in stores and online.
