Who will end up with this season’s fashion to die for, and whose vogue designs will end up in the morgue?
Barton has written my most favorite book to read so far this year. Ah…. where to start. I loved how the married couples showed their true for each other and friends a family were supportive of same sex marriages. It wasn’t reading the nuances of each person’s love; this book showcases this love. As for showcasing, add in a dash of this, or dash of that, and combine with fashion houses and ALL the drama on the catwalk, let the backstage. People die in this novel and I’m even going to hint at who or why. I loved the descriptions for each designer’s gowns. Best to watch for stilettos heading your way – you’ll get that when you read this fantastic novel with exotic settings laid out among a mess of treachery and deceit, love and loss, couture clothing and new hopefuls, the glitz and glamor of high fashion shows, and a complete immersion in the fashion world.
