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.
Labels by H.C. Carlton
From the wild sixties to the sexy seventies, they ruled the world of fashion - and fashion ruled them. Mackenzie Gold - outrageous, racy, shocking, yet desperately yearning for what she can never have. She's fashion's pop queen, obsessed with designing the hottest threads on the scene. Mia Stanton - gorgeous, refined, but tormented by the most shattering hang-up a passionate woman can possess. Her designs set trends that reap fame, wealth...and the undying envy of the person who should love her the most. Coral Stanton - uninhibited, unscrupulous, untrustworthy. She's Mia's mother, the hellfire editor of a top fashion magazine, a woman prepared to pay any price to get what she wants.
