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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Fashion Fairytale 4 May 2011
Format:Hardcover
This is a re-working of the tale of Sleeping Beauty intertwined with the life story of fashion designer Christian Lacroix. Camilla Morton has created a charming, and sometimes dark, story that will appeal to fashionistas and lovers of fairytales. With illustrations by Christian Lacroix, this book is well worth the cover price!

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny but not great 29 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The idea of bringing together importand fashion designers in order to illustrate a "metaphor" of fairy tales in the world of haute couture, may be smart. I have not seen the other two books in the series, but as far as this one is concerned, I was expecting something more spectacular, given the extravagant style of Christian Lacroix ....
