Fashion's greatest secret is about to come undone. Like most people, I bet you thought women and gay men have been the driving force behind the globally burgeoning fashion industry. Like most people, you were wrong. Since togas were haute couture, supernatural beings have been relegated to the fashion industry by an ancient curse. You can blame deep v-necks on the vampires and Uggs on the werewolves. Assembly lines? Zombies. Silly Bandz? Trust me, you don't want to know. For 2,000 years, these secrets have been kept. Until now.

Anthony DiFiore lives in Chicago, IL, and is the author of the "Fangs and Stilettos" series of books. FashionHasASecret.com.From Publishers Weekly:
While people blame the fashion world for all sorts of ills, they usually don't suspect that it is, in fact, run by supernatural creatures. But in this novel from DiFiore, otherworldly creatures—ranging from sorcerers to werewolves and vampires—are bound to fashion by an ancient curse. The woman ostensibly responsible for enforcing that curse, Candice Brown, is determined to break it at any cost and devises a plan to publicly assassinate a designer at fashion week, hoping the subsequent investigation will force the "supernaturals" out of hiding. The protagonists of this illogical novel are almost willfully shallow (and not in a charming way), and readers will find it almost impossible to keep track of the characters' goals. Additionally, the book's conclusion is abrupt and unclear, leaving readers to wonder if the author is planning a sequel.
