Daisy Fellowes

Discipline, a key style ingredient...

In the 1950's Daisy Fellowes and fashion designer Antonio Castillo traveled to her house in the South of France, on the overnight train from Paris.  Long before sunrise, Castillo was awakened by commotion coming from Daisy's cabin.  When she emerged from her cabin, shortly before their arrival, she was perfectly dressed and in full makeup. Castillo asked her: "Is there a gentleman waiting for you at the station, Daisy?"  "Only my driver," she replied.  "Then why are you so dressed up?"  "Why not just a pair of sunglasses?" "I did it for myself," Daisy explained, "It's a question of discipline, you see."
