One Enchanted Evening

by Charlottle Smith, illustrated by Grant Cowan

Every woman has a dress that reminds her of one unforgettable evening …

Charlotte Smith owns literally thousands. Having lived life to the full in London, Paris and New York, when she settled in Australia she inherited a vintage clothing collection of more than 3000 pieces from her beloved Quaker godmother, Doris Darnell.

Most precious of all was Doris’ book of stories, a detailed record of the tales behind these masterpieces. Charlotte’s inheritance was not just a collection of beautiful things, but a glimpse into the lives of the women who wore them.

In One Enchanted Evening Charlotte and illustrator Grant Cowan share some of the most spectacular evening dresses and their stories from The Darnell Collection, which now contains more than 9000 unique pieces from around the world.

From Pucci to Prada, Valentino to Vivienne Westwood, step inside the magical wardrobe every woman would love to own …
