Paris, at the dawn of the modern age:

At night he puts on daring dresses and takes Paris by storm as the fabulous Lady Crystallia―the hottest fashion icon in the world capital of fashion!
Sebastian’s secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances―one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. But Frances dreams of greatness, and being someone’s secret weapon means being a secret. Forever. How long can Frances defer her dreams to protect a friend? Jen Wang weaves an exuberantly romantic tale of identity, young love, art, and family. A fairy tale for any age, The Prince and the Dressmaker will steal your heart.
This book was totally adorable!! I loved the style and colouring and the dresses were simply gorgeous. It gives off a fairytale vibe. I flew through this graphic novel and enjoyed every second of it.
Love the main characters, the storyline and basically everything. This is a very fast read but it left me feeling so warm and happy! Everyone, you NEED this book in your life!! What are you waiting for???
“Some days I look at myself in the mirror and think, ‘That’s me, Prince Sebastian! I wear boy clothes and look like my father.’ Other days it doesn’t feel right at all. Those days I feel like I’m actually…a princess.”
