Overview

Helen Martin spent years in pursuit of fashion and adventure first as a couture runway model and later as a skilled outdoorswoman. She worked with many of the greatest innovators in fashion: Pauline Trigère, James Galanos, Edith Head, Victor Skrebneski, Kim Dawson, Oscar de la Renta, Hubert de Givenchy, Bob Mackie, Donna Karan, and Stanley Marcus, to name but a few. Whether she was strutting on the catwalk or climbing the side of a mountain, she embraced high style as a vocation—a fashionable life lived fearlessly. In High Fashion, High Adventure, Martin combines wit, imagination, and humor in essays that span her start in fashion as a young photographer’s model in Chicago to globetrotting adventurer to Dallas style icon.
