About the Author
Eugenie Bird is a writer who leads a busy life covering the newest developments in the world of fairie Haute Couture while flying between homes in the Middle West and New England. Her farm is a well-known gathering place of Fashionistas searching for tranquility away from the hurly-burly of New York, London, and European fashion centers.

Ellwand, the premier contemporary designer of urban and field wear for the Other People, keeps his atelier in the ancient bluebell groves of West Sussex, England. Outside, a tiny unmarked door offers no sign to passersby, allowing the designer his privacy. Inside, masses of wildflowers, dried grasses, feathers and seedpods, pine cones, and polished pretties surround him as he works late into the night, turning his visions into one-of-a-kind realities. The otherworldly garments in Fairie-Ality were all designed, handcrafted, and photographed for reproduction by the couturier himself. This is the first time that Ellwand has agreed to share his newest line with a human audience. Ellwand lives with his wife and daughter, just two miles from the site said to be the High Seat of the fairies.

David Downton's renowned and widely published portraits of fashions and super-models, winged and unwinged, have earned him fame in both style circles. In the human milieu, he is considered one of Europe's leading fashion artists, known for interpreting the designs of Dior, Chanel, Valentino, and Lacroix at the haute couture shows in Paris. His illustrations have appeared in such top fashion magazines as Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire.
