3. Diana von Furstenberg and the tale of the empress new clothes
This book by Camilla Morton is a modern take on a fairy tale. In the book, Diana von Furstenberg rescues a royal fashion designer by introducing her legendary wrap dress. The story is set against New York City and blends fashion with fiction. The book intertwines two plots: one tells Diane’s story, from meeting her prince to her very first fashion show to the invention of her iconic wrap dress. The second is a reworking of The Emperor’s New Clothes, in which a fashion-crazed empress seeking the affection of her father enlists the help of two con artists masquerading as designers.It’s a story about giving women confidence, which is what I have always tried to do in my work – says von Furstenberg.
