Everyone in the world of fashion is impatient to learn the names of the three American unknowns who will be picked to go to Paris to star in the debut spring collection of designer Marco Lombardi. One of the three lucky models chosen will win a $12 million contract to represent Lombardi's couture house. When the names are announced, Frankie Severino is stunned -- all are under contract to her best friend, agency head Justine Loring. Justine is forced to admit to Frankie that it's no accident. Jacques Necker -- the Swiss billionaire launching Lombardi -- is her father, the man who deserted her mother before Justine was born. Justine has consistently refused to meet him, and the contest has been his attempt to lure her to Paris. But Justine sends Frankie in her place. Under the magic spell of Paris in winter, Frankie and her three charges become restless, rebellious, and wildly romantic. In New York, meanwhile, Justine undergoes a surprising and passionate personal transformation that finally leads her to confront her father. Spring Collection is Judith Krantz at her freshest and most innovative.
