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.
