Product description

Review

At its heart, this is a story of imagination and the freedoms we take for granted: what we wear, where we go and how we get there. It is about the strictures of gender, and the social and historical cost of resisting them. Brimming with hope, it shows us how we might refashion our realities with ignition and grit.

--Vonny Leclerc, Spectator

The story is as extraordinary as the garments themselves.

--Jacqueline Banerjee, Times Literary Supplement

This brilliant book is a wonderful insight into the inventiveness and strength of women at the vanguard of societal changes and these stories - many of which Kat has uncovered for the first time in a century - are truly inspiring.

--Laura Laker, Casquette
