Synopsis:

In this much-anticipated book from Collette Dinnigan, the Australian designer and fashion icon provides an intimate insight into her life and work. For the first time, this intensely private woman opens up about what makes her tick. What inspires her to create clothes worn by the most glamorous women in the world, from film stars to royalty?

Collette's clothes are worn by an extensive and international list of leading actresses, celebrities and royalty, and her collections are sold in every corner of the world, including a flags
