Review

'Channel Your Inner Princess with Christian Lacroix's Fashion Fairy Tale...Christian Lacroix is one of those designers who has always been able to capture fantasy and magic and weave them into each seam and embellishment of his designs. He has teamed up with international bestselling author and fashion writer, Camilla Morton for a new twist on an old tale with Christian Lacroix and the Tale of Sleeping Beauty. The book mixes Lacroix's illustrations with Morton's descriptive writing and provides a bit of escape from the day-to-day, which we all need. The story is re-worked and Lacroix stars in it as the hero, which for many in the fashion industry, he has always been....' --Poshglam.com, February 2011

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.

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!

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 ....
