Elegance: The Beauty of French Fashion


Join internationally acclaimed illustrator Megan Hess on an unforgettable journey to the global fashion capital to encounter ten iconic French designers: Chanel, Dior, Chloé, Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Balmain, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin and Hermès.

From the courts of Versailles to the cobbled streets of Paris, French fashion has always been the epitome of elegance. Whether it's Dior's New Look, Yves Saint Laurent's Le Smoking jacket or Chanel's little black dress, the masters of French fashion understand that clothing is more than a craft: it’s an art form. Megan Hess’s love for French style sparked her career in fashion illustration. In these pages, she unspools the threads of these ten legendary designers to discover the origins of haute couture, prêt-à-porter and everything chic.

The spectacular illustrations of French fashion’s most stylish ready-to-wear and exquisite haute couture collections make Elegance: The Masters of French Fashion an instant classic in the Megan Hess fashion illustration library.
