Product Description

From the Back Cover

Judith Krantz invites you to her stunning Spring Collection - an invitation you cannot possibly decline.

PASSION... In a tale as timely as Scruples, as compelling as Dazzle, as intriguing as Mistral's Daughter, Judith Krantz launches three innocent beauties on the city of fashion and love...

SCANDAL... It's the hottest thing that's ever happened to Loring Model Management. Three of its unknown models have been chosen to star in the debut spring collection of bad-boy designer Marco Lombardi - and one of them will win an exclusive, multimillion-dollar contract. But the agency's owner, Justine Loring, is furious. Only she knows that Lombardi's billionaire backer, Jacques Necker, has set her up, hoping to manipulate her into chaperoning her models to Paris, and meeting him face-to-face.

GLAMOUR... But Justine isn't about to play his game. She dispatches these three sensational girls - the classic Minnesota blonde, the African-American goddess, and the moody Tennessee redhead - in the care of her fiery second-in-command, Francesca Severino. Little does Justine know that their two weeks of discovery and love affairs will be matched by an explosive encounter in Manhattan that will change her own life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romance in the world of fashion 23 Jan 2014
Justine owns a model agency in New York. Somewhat surprisingly, 3 of the models on her books win a 'contest' to go to Paris to present the collection of a new and upcoming designer, Marco Lombardi. Others in the fashion world are surprised that 3 of her models are chosen for this exquisite job, but there are things only Justine knows and Lombardi has his own reasons. The book tells really 5 different stories - the story of Justine, her PA Frankie and the individual stories of the 3 chosen models, all very different and all with their own little stories to tell. All of their lives will be changes by the adventures in Paris and Manhattan, some (most!) will find love by the end of the book as it is expected, but it is still told with a lot of entertainment value.

One of the 'funny' things for me was the mental picture I had in my head of Marco Lombardi. Isn't it funny how we paint a mental picture of book characters in our mind - that is for sure one of the great things about reading a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast-paced and very entertaining read 27 Dec 1997
By Makiko Itoh - Published on
After Scruples Two and Lovers, I was a bit worried that Judith Krantz, my favorite pure-entertainment novelist, was stuck in an '80s timewarp. (Her publicity photo on the bookjacket certainly is.) But this latest book is very much of the '90s, showing that she can adapt to a different era from the time of Princess Daisy, I'll Take Manhattan and co. Spring Collection is a lot faster-paced than all her other books, and most of the action takes place within just a couple of weeks. All the heroines - there are five in this one - are very appealing, and it also features one of the most attractive of any of her main male characters, Jacques Necker. (If you know any real Swiss men like that, please let me know!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Judith Krantz re-vamped for the 90s! 27 Feb 1997
By A Customer - Published on
In her latest tale of glamour and passion Judith Krantz shows her new, 90s style. The novel's cast of characters will take a shortcut to your heart with their directness, vivacity and sense of humor, even if you have no clue what a Paul Mitchell hair is. Spring Collection is the best of all the recent attempts (Models Inc., Pret-a-Porte, Swan, etc.) to fictionalize the elusive world of fashion

4.0 out of 5 stars Spring Collection Was Great!!! 29 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on
I have always been a Danielle Steel fan and have read all her books, so in an effort to have something new to read I checked out Judith Krantz. I am so glad I started with Spring Collection and followed with the Jewels of Tessa Kent. Judith is an awesome writer and I will surely be checking out her older books, as well as any new releases...

4.0 out of 5 stars frothy, light entertainment, well written but a bit shallow 25 Jan 1998
By florkow - Published on
I like her books, I really do! Wonderful text, good language, well-paced stories.
However, books like Till We Meet Again, Princess Daisy or Dazzle showed the characters growing and developping, while Scruples 2, Lovers and this one are just like - and Krantz says it herself towards the end of the book - like an extra long episode of Love Boat. You enjoy it hugely, but you cannot get emotionally involved with her characters as much as in her other novels.
The book was a treat, I'll read the next one as soon as it comes out, but I hope that, at some point, Judith Krantz will write something a bit more emotionally strong again, not just the best soap opera in the world. But then, I am not complaining (too much), the best soap opera is still mighty good reading!!
