The Way We Wore – A Life In Clothes
The book is here! Pan Macmillan has published the memoir of Daphne Selfe, the world’s oldest supermodel. The Way We Wore: A Life in Clothes
Available in Hardback / Paperback / Immediate Download
Daphne Selfe has been photographed by Mario Testino, Nick Knight and David Bailey. She has modelled for Dolce and Gabbana, Red or Dead and high-street chains such as TK Maxx, and regularly appears in newspaper fashion pages and glossy magazines. She is one of Britain’s most in-demand supermodels and has worked non-stop for almost twenty years. But what makes her really rather extraordinary is that she is now in her late eighties.
The Way We Wore is a heart-warming account of that love affair, taking readers from the organdie party frocks of a 1930s childhood to the pages of Vogue.
In it, Daphne shares a wealth of anecdotes from her peripatetic childhood, following her teacher father from school to school, from her modelling career, which began as a department store house model, and from her long and happy marriage. The result is a vivid and inspiring memoir from a woman who has always embraced life and who continues to do so in her ninth decade with as much zest as in her first.
Georgina Morley, non-fiction editorial director, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to The Way We Wore from Gordon Wise at Curtis Brown.
Morley said: “Everyone at Pan Macmillan is absolutely thrilled to be publishing Daphne Selfe’s memoir, The Way We Wore. Daphne is an inspiration to us all, proving that real beauty is ageless.”
The Way We Wore is published by Macmillan on 16th July as a £16.99 hardback.
