Book Description

Nov. 1 1993 Nancy Drew Files

In a world of lace, silk, and chiffon, Nancy finds that murder is made to order!

Beau Winston is a hot name in fashion, and he's invited Nancy Drew into his New York studio to find out who is stealing his original designs. But now he has suffered an even greater loss -- one that threatens to destroy his reputation. Someone has made off with his most prized creation: a wedding gown custom-made for heiress Joanna Rockwell.

Nancy's investigation draws her into a web of hidden motives and twisted ambitions. She uncovers a pattern of intrigue, betrayal, and revenge stretching from Manhattan's Garment District to the Fifth Avenue triplex of the billionaire Rockwell family. And every new thread in the case leads to an increase in danger: for the thief of fashions is now dressed to kill!

This Story is about Nancy working on a case that is about a fashion designer. When Nancy saw the two same dresses but one was made with cheap fabric and they stole the design from Beau. Nancy wanted to find out who stole Joanna's wedding dress and who stole Beau's designs and sold it with cheaper prices. Nancy found out that it was Angel that sold all the designs to someone. Angel was Beau's helper from his studio. Unfortunately Angel was murdered and Nancy thought that it was Mimi Piazza. Mimi Piazza was another designer who got the designs from angel and sold it for cheaper prices. Later, Mimi Piazza got caught and Joanna found her wedding dress and got married.
I liked the story because it was a mystery kind of book. Nancy gets to solve all kinds of fun mysteries. I don't like the book is because, when it has a mysteries it doesn't go too deep into the story, a person could just guess really easy who the mystery person is. I liked how the book described the studio and Joananna's father's home. I also liked the book because it tells the reader how lucky Bess is. She gets to be a model just in one day.
My favorite part of the story is when Nancy tried to sneak into Mimi Piazza's studio but the security guard sees her and she got caught and he told her that next time she comes in she is going to be really big trouble. Nancy didn't listen to him and tried to distract the truck driver and tried to sneak through the staris again but she got caught. She went back to Beau's studio and Beau told her that Mimi Piazza's studio is well secured ans no one can go in except that if she knows you. The next day Nancy sneaked in as one of the fashion design students. She tried to find Joannan's wedding dress but didn't find it and she had to leave.
