Ready your velour tracksuits everyone: A book is officially on the way that will cover the cofounders of Juicy Couture Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor's rise to LA ubiquity. In Skaist-Levy's words, the book will be "about how we're the American dream, starting a business with $200 and growing it into a global brand." Fashion critic Booth Moore, an LA-er and something of a Juicy expert, was nabbed to cover the girls' start all the way to their current Skaist-Taylor line, including all the ups and downs in between.
