About the Author
Gladys Perint Palmer studied Fashion Design at St. Martin's School of Art in London and Fashion Illustration at Parsons School of Design, New York. As Fashion Editor of The San Francisco Examiner, she developed a fine sense of the absurd and cultivated a true appreciation of the ridiculous - prerequisites for convering the fashion capitals of New York, Milan, Paris and London, which proved fertile ground for her pern and pencil. Palmer's writing and illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The New Yorker, Elle, Vogue, L'Officiel and Marie Claire. Clients include Geoffrey Beene, Christian Dior, Missoni, Oscar de la Renta, Lancome, Prescriptives, Fendi and Saks Fifth Avenue. Her work has been exhibited in Hong Kong, New York, Milan, London and San Francisco.
Top Customer Reviews
This book would probably outrightly bore those who are interested in the shopping-fashion-celebrities sort of arena - instead it is more suited for those who are interested in an industry viewpoint of fashion. She pokes a lot of fun at people - nothing at all malice, but it is an entertaining book.
