Harold Carlton sketched the Paris collections for many years for THE SUNDAY TIMES, the OBSERVER and other publications including ELLE magazine. He worked as assistant designer for two Paris maisons de couture, Nina Ricci and Courreges. Subsequently he illustrated MADEMOISELLE magazine and the NEW YORK TIMES and wrote for the VILLAGE VOICE. He returned to London to become Menswear Editor of THE SUNDAY TIMES. He is the author of HEAVEN, HELL AND MADEMOISELLE.
Passion, fashion and ambition all crash along together in this highly readable, rollicking bonk-buster made all the more authentic as the author worked in Paris sketching the fashion shows in the 1960s and 70s.
