About the Author
Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux spent most of her life in Paris, and now lives in the south of France. Even as a child she preferred to accompany her mother to the dressmaker's rather than go to the movies. Her talent for design and making costume jewelry led her to open her own fashion house, and her success eventually took her to Nina Ricci, where she was the directrice for many years.
I grew up in a house surrounded by 5-6 elegant and fashionable ladies so I enjoyed watching them put on makeup, brush their hair, choose their dresses or suits (!!!) and step into gorgeous heels before going off to work.
If you feel that you need a style guide, you will find this book helpful since it's written by a French lady and everyone knows that the French are known for their elegant classics.
Remember, it's just a guide - it is not prescriptive medicine so you do not need to follow anyone's orders.
