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.

From the Back Cover:

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.

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.
