Clothes Make the Woman

A peek inside London fashion with couturier David Sassoon

Print Email
David Sassoon

David Sassoon has become a legend for dressing the rich, the aristocratic, the glamorous, and, especially, the royals. He’s just celebrated 50 years in the fashion business, and he’s now published a lavish book called The Glamour of Bellville Sassoon. It’s part autobiography and part gorgeous coffee-table spread, with pictures of the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Princess Diana modeling his exotic outfits.

Nextbook visited the designer in his London showroom and spoke with him about his Sephardic roots, his first visit to Buckingham Palace, and how Jewish weddings were ahead of the trends.

A chum encoraged me to read this post, great post, fascinating read… keep up the cool work!

Good article, thank you. I really like it!

One thing I would really like to touch upon is that weightloss routine fast may be accomplished by the perfect diet and exercise. Ones size not simply affects appearance, but also the general quality of life. Self-esteem, despression symptoms, health risks, as well as physical skills are influenced in an increase in weight. It is possible to make everything right whilst still having a gain. If this happens, a medical problem may be the primary cause. While too much food but not enough exercise are usually at fault, common health concerns and popular prescriptions could greatly help to increase size. Thx for your post right here gywl512.
