The perfect gift for fans of classic Hollywood - ideal for fashion, film, and design aficionados. From one of the great bon vivants of our age comes this witty memoir of an extraordinary life lived among a glittering social set. Acclaimed designer and founder of Pret-a-Porter Marc Rosen shares in this delightful reminiscence the stories of his encounters with the great beauties, talents, and personalities of the last 50 years. Marc has rubbed shoulders with everyone - from Hollywood royalty (including Helen Hayes, Bette Davis, and his own wife, Arlene Dahl, the girl for whomTechnicolor was invented) to actual royalty (Princess Grace of Monaco, the Romanovs) to the moguls of the beauty and fashion worlds (Charles Revson, Karl Lagerfeld) over the course of his brilliant career.
Marc Rosen is a seven-time Fifi Award winner for his work in fashion and beauty packaging and the author of the successful coffee table book, Glamour Icons ISBN 9781851496600. A professor at The Pratt Institute, he is also a successful entrepreneur who founded Pret-a-Porter. His designs may be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and La Musee de la Mode in Paris, France. He lives in New York City and upstate New York.More About Marc Rosen
