Catherine Walker

An Autobiography By The Private Couturier To Diana, Princess Of Wales

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

When Diana, Princess of Wales, announced the auction of eighty of her evening gowns - most of them designed by Catherine Walker - the French-born, London-based designer was thrust into the spotlight she has long eschewed.

Catherine Walker's career is a literal rags-to-riches tale that transcends fashion. In a poignant, distinctive voice, Walker shares her experiences of love and marriage, the grief of being widowed with two babies in a foreign land, her early days selling children's dresses door-to-door out of a basket, to a rule-breaking career among the stars and royalty, and her own battle with breast cancer.

The story runs parallel to the arrival of the young Diana, Princess of Wales, whose fifteen-year professional relationship with Catherine Walker saw her develop from a fairy-tale princess to a style icon of legendary proportions.

This book is a chronicle of two remarkable women who remained true to themselves, even amidst the pressures of the glamorous worlds of fashion and royalty.
