1944, Paris. When Copper Reilly's husband commits one betrayal too many, she demands a separation, and finds an unlikely new friend: an obscure, middle-aged designer from the back rooms of a decaying fashion house. Christian Dior's timid nature and reluctance for fame clash with the bold brilliance of his designs. Copper urges Dior to strike out on his own, helping to pull him away from his insecurities and towards stardom. Taking her own advice, Copper ventures into the world of fashion journalism. Torn between two very different suitors, questioning who she is and what she truly wants, can Copper make a new, love-filled life for herself?
