About the Author

Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux spent most of her life in Paris, and now lives in the south of France. Even as a child she preferred to accompany her mother to the dressmaker's rather than go to the movies. Her talent for design and making costume jewelry led her to open her own fashion house, and her success eventually took her to Nina Ricci, where she was the directrice for many years.

Set out like an encyclopedia, this book explains what style meant in the early 1960s. While some of the advice is quite dated, most of it is generally good and still useful. Seems to be aimed at *very* wealthy women (extensive discussion of furs, adamant that a diamond solitare of less than 2 carats is ridiculous). I enjoyed it most as a glimpse of the past, with details about life as a clotheshorse when no woman left the house without hat and gloves.
