"The Never Ending Story", Michael Ende - After years of requesting it for Christmas, my mum finally tracked down for me the version of this book that I so coveted. It is printed in red and green ink to differentiate between the action that takes place in the story, and the story within the story. Quite a thing of beauty!
The House of Lanvin evolved from the creative force and remarkable energy of an extraordinary woman, Jeanne Lanvin. Her design career survived fifty-six successful and productive years. Lanvin is the oldest surviving couture house, in near-continuous existence from 1909 through the present day.
Featuring looks from the runway, film, television, the red carpet, and the worlds of royalty and politics, this book celebrates the staying power of these gorgeous, sleek, sultry, and outrageous creations as well as the lasting impact they’ve had in fashion, popular culture, and our own lives.
