Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Second in a series (following Christian Lacroix and the Tale of Sleeping Beauty) originated by fashion writer Morton (How To Walk in High Heels) that invites famous designers to tell their stories through fractured fairy tales. The books will all be paper over board, with a four-color case and a wraparound vellum dust jacket—maybe not perfect for library shelves but certainly a series to consider.

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.
