Summary
There has to be more than one way to be a woman. Patricia Volk's mother was an upper-middle class New Yorker, a great beauty and a polished hostess. The iconoclastic Italian fashion designer, Elsa Schiaparelli, was a cultural revolutionary who embodied the 'daring'. For Patricia, who read Schiap's autobiography at a tender age, these two women offered fabulously contrasting lessons in everything from fashion, make-up, lingerie, family and entertaining, to love, sex, superstition and gambling - lessons that would stay with her for the rest of her life
