Fighting Fashion

Fighting Fashion

by HelenStorey (Author)


The book traces the personal development of one of Britain's most exciting fashion designers, from her childhood experiences as the daughter of award-winning novelist and playwright David Storey, her training at Kingston Polytechnic, her early career under Valentino and Lancetti in Rome and Bellville Sassoon in London, to the rise of her own label, retailing from her own shops and leading stores throughout the world. Helen Storey charts the painful process of watching her firm go into receivership and looks to her future in fashion with a renewed vigour and an interest in challenging the very mechanics of the industry. With a poignant rawness, Helen Storey reveals the truth about the strains of seeing a love one through their battle with cancer, of running a multi-million-pound fashion business and of being a mother and a wife.
