Fashion may be fabulous, but what price true luxury? With incredible access to the glamorous world of the luxury brand, Deluxe goes deep inside the workings of today's world of profit margins and market share to discover the fate of real luxury. From the importance of fashion owners, to red carpet stars and the seasonal 'must-have' handbags, Dana Thomas shows how far illustrious houses have moved from their roots. Thomas witnesses how these 'luxury' handbags are no longer one in a million, discovers why luxury brand clothing doesn't last as long, and finds out just who is making your perfume. From terrifying raids on the Chinese sweat shops to the daunting chic of Paris workshops, from the handcrafting and economics of early-twentieth century designers to the violent truth behind the 'harmless' fakes, Deluxe goes deep into the world of extravagance, and asks: where can true luxury go now?

"Thomas provides a detailed history of federal health policy as it was applied to the U.S. South in the mid-twentieth century, a period when the region was described as "the number one health problem in the nation." In particular, she focuses on how reformers' early emphasis on across-the-board regional uplift was eclipsed by efforts to desegregate medical facilities and address racial disparities in the health care system"--Provided by publisher.

Iris Nowell identifies a worldwide class of multi-millionaires and billionaires emerging from the early 1990s - Generation Deluxe. Dot-com survivors, self-made entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, financiers, real estate moguls, media titans - their wealth starts at $100 million and ascends to the stratospheric affluence of Bill Gates, at $46 billion. The super-rich will spend $50 and $100 million just to build a house, and similar amounts for private jets, boats, and fleets of vehicles. The small change goes for a $25,000 wedding cake, a $1.2 millon watch, a $33,000 night in a Geneva hotel. Iris Nowell's exploration of consumerism reveals that lavish living imposes huge costs on the environment and endangers many forms of life. To clean up the damage, increasing numbers of the new super-rich, along with old-money inheritors, are redirecting their philanthropy to fund environmental protections - and, as never before, are helping to alleviate the global problems of poverty, hunger, illiteracy, and disease.
