Join fashion designer, artist, and entrepreneur Isaac Mizrahi and author Caroline Weber for a conversation on her new book Proust’s Duchess, a brilliant look at the glittering world of turn-of-the-century Paris told through the first in-depth study of the three women who inspired Proust to create his supreme fictional character, the Duchesse de Guermantes. Weber is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at Barnard College and the author of Queen of Fashion: What Marie-Antoinette Wore to the Revolution.
