 HOUSE OF LACHASSE   By Peter Lewis-Crown OBE
HOUSE OF LACHASSE book cover
House of Lachasse documents the past seventy years of British fashion through the life of one designer. It tells the story of Peter Lewis-Crown as his life becomes entwined with the history of one of the London’s leading couture houses. It is a celebration of beautiful clothes, the talented people who design and make them and the lucky people who wear them. It leaves us with the question ‘where does fashion go from here?
Dame Norma Major DBE


Lewis-Crown recalls tales of high society fashion shows, confesses secrets of the fashion trade and explains what is it like to dress royalty.

Readers will learn how people kept up appearances during World War Two, experience a post-war London art school, see a couture house from the perspective of a designer and hear anecdotes about many well-known figures.

The book includes photographs from Peter Lewis-Crown’s own collection.
