About this title


After he engages gay designer Adam Green, Marc Street, head of a garment house in New York, is catapulted to fashion stardom, until Adam's dissolution, his own love affair, and his connections to the criminal underworld threaten his company

From Library Journal:

Spanning a period of 12 years, this tightly knit novel traces the varying fortunes of Marc Street, protege of Coco Chanel. Real-life and fictional characters mingle to provide a realistic insider's look at the world of high fashion through the lives and loves of its business people, models, designers, critics, and sometimes less-than-legitimate backers. Street; his gay designer, Adam; his lover Chelsea, heiress-turned-model-turned-designer, encounter any number of difficulties in their professional and personal relationships before the final triumph of spirit that marks the resolution. This new novel by the author of Superchic , Holy Wars , and Paris One should entertain even those who aren't fashion enthusiasts. Occasional passages may offend some readers. Judith A. Gifford, Salve Regina Coll. Lib., Newport, R.I.
