Camilla Morton is an author, journalist and fashion-industry aficionado, whose commentaries on style (from her vantage as both a spectator and an inside participant) have gained her worldwide acclaim. Her latest project with Laurence King Publishing, an Oracle series inspired by the industry icons – illustrated by Anna Higgie – is providing the answers to all of our sartorial conundrums as we enter the final leg of Fashion Month and prepare to embark on the Paris 'marathon'. And so, this week, we've invited Camilla to call upon the higher powers and divine for us our daily fashion fortunes (and reveal precisely why she's picked them)...

"Coco Chanel is the most recognised fashion name in Paris... (If, by now, you are getting fashion weary, spare a thought for the Front Row; they’ve sat without a hair out of place for a month!)

For those that wear black, you have Chanel to thank. ‘Coco’ first debuted her LBD in 1926, and her Camelia, pearls and signature scents remain the definition of ‘Parisian chic’. Now under the directorship of Karl Lagerfeld, another oracle, during a Chanel show you will find all oracles from the centre of Fashion."


Fashion Oracles: Life and Style Inspiration from the Fashion Greats by Camilla Morton, illustrated by Anna Higgie, is available to buy here from Laurence King Publishing.
