Audrey Morgen Volk, an upper-middle-class New Yorker, was a great beauty and the polished hostess at her family's garment district restaurant. Elsa Schiaparelli"Schiap"the haute couture designer whose creations shocked the world, blurred the line between fashion and art and believed that everything, even a button, has the potential to delight. Audrey's daughter Patricia read Schiap's autobiography at a tender age and was transformed by it. Moving seamlessly between the Volks' Manhattan and Florida milieu and Schiap's life in Rome and Paris, Shocked weaves these women's lives and ideas into a marvel-filled meditation on beauty.
