After nearly a three-year hiatus from designing couture, Christian Lacroix is ready for his comeback!
The French designer been chosen to pay homage to late Italian couturier Elsa Schiaparelli with a 15-piece collection to be presented in June in Paris.
The appointment comes seven years after Italian fashion mogul Diego Delle Valle purchased the Schiaparelli trademarks and archives and a year since he announced a relaunch of the house during the Schiaparelli-and-Prada-themedMet Gala in 2012.
Diane von Furstenberg has had a fantastic life–marrying a prince, launching her own fashion empire–so it makes perfect sense to use her biography as inspiration for a modern fairy tale.
British author Camilla Morton, who has also written modern fairy tales for Christian Lacroix and Manolo Blahnik, has spun a thoroughly enchanting tale called Diane von Furstenberg and The Tale of The Empress's New Clothes, based on the children's classic The Emperor's New Clothes and the designer's own story.
Though, according to Morton, her version of the tale will be much more empowering than the original.
