All our favourite classics fairytales are being re-invented with a fashionable twist from Christian Lacroix
'Fashion Fairytale Memoirs' are revamping our favourite 'Once Upon a Time' stories with the real-life tales of famed fashion designers.
Illustrated by the designers themselves, 'Christian Lacroix and the Tale of Sleeping Beauty' is the first in the series and is available tomorrow at Net-a-Porter.com
Written by fashion writer and international best-selling author Camilla Morton, the book is illustrated by the tale's hero himself - Monsieur Lacroix.
The story involves the prince tracing his career from his early days in haute couture to the opening of his eponymous fashion house. In an appropriate fash-twist, Lacroix's love interest is not in need of a kiss, but a makeover.
Celebrated for his designs, we think Lacroix has the perfect hand as an illustrator - with a celebrated career journey to match. Who says we're too old for fairy tales?
Christain Lacroix and The Tale of Sleeping Beauty is available now at net-a-porter.com from tomorrow for £12.99
