Description
"As a young woman Kate Betts nursed a dream of striking out on her own and discovering who she was meant to be in Paris. Upon graduation from Princeton and not without trepidation, she took off, renting a room in the apartment of a young 'BCBG' family and throwing herself into Parisian culture, determined to master French slang, style, and savoir-faire, and find a job that would give her a reason to stay. After a series of dues-paying jobs, she began a magnificent apprenticeship at Women's Wear Daily and was initiated into the high fashion world at a moment that saw the last glory of the old guard and the explosion of a new generation of talent. From a woozy yet enchanting Yves Saint Laurent to the mischievous and commanding Karl Lagerfeld, to the riotous, brilliant young guns--Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, and John Galliano--who were rewriting the rules of fashion, Betts gives us a view of what it looked like to a young American girl, finding herself, falling in love, and exploring this dazzling world all at once. Rife with insider information about restaurants, shopping, travel, and food, Betts's memoir brings the enchantment of France to life--from the nightclubs of Paris where she learned to dance Le Rock, to the lavender fields of Provence and the forests of le Bretagne--in an unforgettable memoir of coming-of-age"--
