About the Fashion Fairy Tale Memoir Series

Each book in this inspired series from fashion writer Camilla Morton inventively reimagines one of our favorite "Once Upon a Time" stories, blending with it the real-life story of a famed fashion designer. Lushly illustrated by the designers themselves, these tales illuminate each iconic individual's creative magic while celebrating his unique life and career. The result is an intriguing combination of whimsy and memoir.

In this contemporary twist on the tale of Sleeping Beauty, Monsieur Lacroix exercises a stunningly diverse array of artistic styles, revealing many more mesmerizing sides to his fertile imagination than those we have already seen in his magnificent fashions.

About the Author:

Camilla Morton is a London-based fashion writer and the author of the international bestseller How to Walk in High Heels, which has been translated into twenty languages worldwide. She was the runway reporter for U.K. Vogue.com, covering all international and couture collections. Morton has collaborated with several designers and written for magazines, newspapers and blogs, including Time magazine's "Style and Design," SHOWStudio, the Wall Street Journal's "Off Duty" section, and Harper's Bazaar in both the U.S. and the U.K. This is her fifth book.

Diane von FUrstenberg arrived in New York in 1970 with a suitcase full of her iconic wrap dresses and changed the way women dressed. DVF has pioneered fashion and business, built and sold a cosmetics company and founded a publishing house, and she supports many philanthropic causes—especially for women and the environment. DVF returned from a hiatus to fashion in 1997, relaunching the signature wrap to international acclaim. In 2005 the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awarded her a Lifetime Achievement Award, and the following year named her as the Council President.
