1947. A fashion empire rises from the ashes of war-torn Paris, run by the breathtakingly charming and thoroughly ruthless Paul Sabine. But behind the glamour and elegance lies a devastating secret that threatens to destroy the company's delicately built success. Sophisticated and contemporary in tone, this is a story about the price of success, set during a pivotal moment in France's history.

I just wrote a long comment and my finger slipped and hit that gigantic X thats up there in the right corner and deleted the entire thing!!!!
Is that X necessary?

Completely awful. I don't know why they called it The Collection - it has nothing to do with the fashion industry. But then, I didn't watch all of it, not being able to get past the Richard Coyle and Frances de La Tour characters.

This series is not sure what it is, a romance, murder mystery or war story. One thing you can be sure of is it is bad. The fashion is beautiful but the bad acting can't make up for it. You can not set a film in Paris on fashion and have a staff full of heavy English accents, it blows the setting. All around someone had a lot of money to waste in making this bad film series.

I was hooked from the first episode- hints of all the secrets, post-war appreciation for beauty, different morals of the time - all make this worth watching.

All British actors speaking English playing the French roles, that's bad. Frances de la Tour looks and sounds grotesque. I am very surprised that PBS would put their name to something this bad. Only managed to watch almost one episode.
