Ginette Spanier – It isn’t all Mink

Ginette Spanier, the Directrice of Balmain.

I love a good book and I cannot resist buying them at little sales, maybe
it’s a church sale or a market stall but I love a used book. Not a library
book, although I do have a library card. I think I bought this at a bookstore near Hoxton Square.

Anyway I recently read “It Isn’t All Mink”. I saw the cover and
just had to buy it. It was first printed in 1959 but the copy I have is from
1961. It’s not the year it was published that’s appealing to me, it’s the worn
pages, corners that are bent, also the black and white photos in the book and
everything sounds so glamorous. But it’s some how it’s just not the story you
expect from a “fashion” book. Definitely worth the read!
