Projects come from a host of designers…as well as Jean Paul Gaultier, Roland Mouret and Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing”

“Make Life Beautiful gives a little insight into some of the biggest names within fashion and style; but from a different perspective, and that’s what makes this book such a delightful one.”
