Christian Lacroix Illustrates

Wow! Thanks Camilla Morton for asking Christian Lacroix to illustrate your take on Sleeping Beauty.  I'm obssessing over this now!  I'm dying to check out the entire Fashion Fairytale Memoir Series.  Each book is illustrated by the designers themselves, "these tales illuminate each iconic individual's creative magic while celebrating his unique life and career."  Cheers.

"How did your love for fairy tales influence your career path?
I was brought up on a diet of Vera Southgate's Ladybird book series of Well-Loved Fairytales, and I always wanted to work in a world that created dreams and “happily ever afters.” I started going to couture shows [while I was still at school], and the escapism, beauty and fantasy of the collections pulled like a magnet—it was like a real life Disney extravaganza, and I had to be there to witness it. -Lacroix"
