No detectable flaws; fine and housed in fine dustjacket. “Most people are familiar with Hilkka Nygard as the matriarch of the internationally famous fashion empire founded by her son, Peter Nygaard. Peters’s trust in his mother’s uncanny ability to “read” people, and her fundemental understanding of the way in which business works, made her his most trusted confidant. While she was , as Peter often said, the “wind beneath his wings”, she was so in a much larger context than merely that of a supremely talented business woman.” Hardcover. (#1087) $45.00
