About the Author
Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux spent most of her life in Paris, and now lives in the south of France. Even as a child she preferred to accompany her mother to the dressmaker's rather than go to the movies. Her talent for design and making costume jewelry led her to open her own fashion house, and her success eventually took her to Nina Ricci, where she was the directrice for many years.

Yes - this book was written during a different time of fashion and when women held a different place in the world, yet the overall concepts are still true. If you get hung up on the references to the 60's then this won't work for you, but if you can look past that, you'll see that it still applies today. I recommend it to anyone interested in fashion and elegance.
since reading I have emptied the closet a bit more .. donated various piles of clothing I truly never wear .. ( and maybe some I never did wear... who knows maybe it will encourage you to shop less impulsively. After all how many black dresses do we really need !!!! last I counted I had about 30 !!!
