Catherine Walker Summary


Catherine Walker: An autobiography by the private couturier to Diana, Princess of Wales by Catherine Walker

Catherine Walker's career is a story for all women in the '90s - a rags-to-riches tale that transcends fashion: from her early days selling children's clothes door-to-door out of a basket, to her first commission from Diana, Princess of Wales.

This year, Catherine Walker celebrates 21 years of exemplary design work during which time she has won awards as Britain's leading couturier. Today, her clients include Princess Noor of Jordan, Lady Helen Taylor, The Duchess of Kent, Shakira Caine and Catrina Skepper. The foreword is written by Liz Tilberis, a client, and the editor-in-chief at Harper's Bazaar.

With 200 stunning photographs from such top photographers as Patrick Demarchelier and Platon, Catherine Walker offers the first in-depth look into the life and work of the notoriously reclusive designer, whose fifteen-year relationship with Diana produced the celebrated dresses that have come to define royal taste in recent history. When Diana announced the auction at Christie's 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 is Catherine's story - in her own words.

One of the UK's leading national magazines will be running extracts of Catherine Walker, which are being used as the basis of a TV ad promotion for the magazine. The extracts will run for 4 weeks.
