Product description


‘What he gives us, ultimately, is a circus the likes of which, given present circumstances, we may never see again. My advice is to do as I did: apply a good squirt of Fracas to your wrists, and sit back and enjoy the lunatic rideObserver, Book of the Week

Ideal reading material for anyone who found The Devil Wears Prada addictive but now needs a stronger hit. It is brimful of toxic behaviour and noxious values, which makes it perfect consolation, too, for lockdown’ Daily Telegraph

‘Such stories about the fashion greats make for perfect lockdown gossip … the lid has been lifted’ Sunday Times

‘A memoir on thriving and surviving the cut-throat fashion industry amid racism and homophobia, The Chiffon Trenches charts Talley’s rise from humble beginnings to becoming one of the most influential men in fashion. From Talley’s first job assisting Andy Warhol at a fashion magazine, to his friendships with the late Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour, The Chiffon Trenches makes for captivating reading for fashion fans and beyond’ Another Magazine

Honestly and candidly captures 50 sublime years of fashion. Talley’s unrivalled knowledge, extraordinary eye for spotting raw talent and ‘ahead of the curve’ ability to clearly define what makes a good dress, draws you in from page one. An insightful and intelligent read, conveyed in a way only he could’ Manolo Blahnik

A riveting, enthralling, and heartbreaking read … Andre has lived life at the epicenter of the most glamourous worlds of fashion in both Paris and New York; and now this book is one more chapter in his amazing legacy’ Wendy Goodman, Design Editor, New York Magazine

Read this book if you want to be entertained, educated, enlightened, and most of all taught how to step out of the crowd to become your own true & authentic self’ Marc Benioff, New York Times bestselling author of Trailblazer
