John Burr Fairchild was the publisher and editor in chief of Women's Wear Daily from 1960 to 1996 and the founding editor of W magazine in 1972. “Fashionable Savages,” is a conversational, opinionated novel that covers both the intricate details and big ideas of the fashion industry at the time. It stops first in Paris and then New York, saving the best for last—a lengthy discussion of the Best Dressed List and those who appear on it—and includes fascinating insights into Coco Chanel, Diana Vreeland, Babe Paley, Gloria Guinness, the Duchess of Windsor, Jacqueline Kennedy, and many others.
