Elegance: The Beauty of French Fashion by Megan Hess

Megan Hess explores the timeless beauty and glamour of ten of France's best-loved designers in a stylish celebration of one of the world’s favourite fashion destinations.

From the courts of Versailles to the cobbled streets of Paris, French fashion has always been the epitome of elegance. Whether it's Dior's New Look, Yves Saint Laurent's Le Smoking jacket or Chanel's little black dress, the masters of French fashion understand that clothing is more than a craft: it’s an art form.

Megan also has three other books in this series - The Dress: 100 Iconic Moments in Fashion, New York through a Fashion Eye and Paris through a Fashion eye available from The Gift Edit.
