Diane Von Furstenberg and the Tale of the Empress's New Clothesby Camilla Morton
Synopses & Reviews
The third book in Camilla Morton's unique Fashion Fairy Tale Memoir series, Diane von Fürstenberg and the Tale of the Empress's New Clothes wraps the life story of the iconic designer, international jetsetter, and one-time Andy Warhol muse around one of our most beloved and enduring ‘once-upon-a-time' fables. Royalty and fashion collide in this delightfully fresh take on the classic Emperor's New Clothes tale written by London-based fashion writer Morton (American Vogue, The Wall Street Journal) and art directed exclusively by Diane von Fürstenberg herself—as the iconic designer helps the story's young Empress discover all the colors, shapes, and sizes of inspiration, in a grown-up fairytale that teaches women how to feel creative and empowered.
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 also celebrating his or her unique life and career. The result is an intriguing combination of whimsy and memoir.
In this contemporary twist on The Emperor's New Clothes, Diane von Furstenberg's iconic prints and bright color palette are reworked with signature DVF humor, grace and immense charm. Her illustrations reveal not only all that is regal about her, but all that is very real, as well.
