Synopsis: Like their finest designs for the runway, the gardens of the couturiers are exquisite creations of color, texture, line, shape, and form. This lavishly illustrated volume takes the reader on a private tour of the gardens of nearly a score of the most renowned fashion designers in the world. Guided by the extraordinary eye of the photographer Claire de Virieu and the illuminating pen of author Francis d'Orleans, the reader is invited to savor the formal elegance of Hubert de Givenchy's garden in Normandy and the joie de vivre of his garden in the south of France; the bold exoticism of Yves Saint Laurent's garden in Marrakech; the timeless grace of Valentino's garden in Tuscany; the luxuriant grandeur of Oscar de la Renta's garden in Connecticut; the quaint charm of Hardy Amies's garden in the Cotswolds, and many others. On this leisurely stroll the reader will also come upon the designers themselves, each of whom is photographed in his or her garden.
Stunningly beautiful and sensuous, Gardens of Fashion is sure to be irresistible to followers of fashion trends and garden lovers alike.
