I don't know how easy to find this book will be - my understanding is that it is a popcorn fiction type book. The central character is based on Bill Blass, but in a somewhat unkind light, is presented as a social-climbing, superficial anti-hero. I'm curious to read it because in Blass' great memoir, he mentioned how funny he thought it was and at the very least, the main character came across as very handsome.

1970. This was an amazing account of the 7th Avenue fashion industry from the 40s to 1961. Gay fashion designers, high society crowd, backstabbing media moguls and race car drivers, from Plam Beach to L.A. to Acapulco and back to New York. Not enough sex, but some. Lots of description of dress styles. Too much for me. Fun book though.
