About the Fashion Fairy Tale Memoir Series

Each book in this inspired series by fashion writer Camilla Morton inventively reimagines one of our favorite “Once Upon a Time” stories, blending it with 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 the Elves and the Shoemaker, Manolo Blahník’s delightful drawings evoke the past, envision the future, and, of course, evidence the indelible footprint he’s made on fashion history. His illustrations take us from the banana plantations of his childhood to his current reign at the top of high-fashion footwear design, while playfully hinting at all the adventures he’s had and friends he’s met along the way.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pixie Boots have Heels 1 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The second retold fairy tale by Camilla Moreton featuring drawings by Manolo Blahnik. The retelling of fairy stories linked to fashion designers is a masterstroke by Camilla Moreton. These books are well written, funny and beautifully illustrated. Perfect for any age group, children will love the drawings and the modern story setting, while older fashionistas will love to read about Blahnik as well as look at the drawn designs. I also have the Christian Lacroix and the Sleeping Beauty which was the first book in what I hope is to become a collectable series.
