A Guide to Elegance by Genevieve Antoine Dariaux
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A new-look edition of the style bible from the 1960s written by French fashion guru Genevieve Antoine Dariaux, which provided the inspiration for Kathleen Tessaro's novel of the same name. An early version of "What Not to Wear", the book states that "Being beautiful is no guarantee of happiness in this world. Strive instead for elegance, grace and style." From accessories to zippers, Madame Dariaux imparts her pearls of wisdom on all things fashion-related - and also offers advice on other crucial areas in life from shopping with girlfriends (don't) to marriage and sex.

Author Biography

Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux has spent most of her life in Paris, but 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 jewellery led her to open her own fashion house, and her success led eventually to Nina Ricci, where she was the directrice for many years.
