About the Author:

Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux has spent most of her life in Paris, but now lives in the South of France. Even as a child she preferred to accompany her mother to the dressmaker’s rather than go to the movies. Her talent for design and making costume jewellery led her to open her own fashion house, and her success led eventually to Nina Ricci, where she was the directrice for many years.
