Product description


'If your own small business is just a gleam in your eye, Cath Kidston's account of her journey from playing shop as a child to being an internationally renowned British brand will be both inspirational and entertaining.' --Woman & Home, May 2013

'The entrepreneur who almost single-handedly made 'modern vintage' a global brand talks about her life behind the tills. Cath Kidston offers sharp business savvy among the floral print and polka dots.' --Mollie Makes, April 2013

'To mark the company's twentieth anniversary, founder Cath Kidston describes her past life in this simple yet charming book, which is amply illustrated with patterns, designs and photographs. The chatty tone of the text belies the scale of the author's achievements in developing her business from a small shop in west London to a global brand.' --House & Garden, July 2013

'[Cath Kidston's] passionate faith in her brand and sense of fun shine through in an enjoyably inspiring read.' --Hello!, 6th May 2013

'...don't be fooled, this is not just a biography. True, Cath does tell you the tales of her floral patterned world but also gives young business and fashion entrepreneurs some hints and tips along the way. In keeping with her trademark style, the book is beautifully presented with quirky photographs and pictures illustrating the history of the Cath Kidston brand as well as Cath's own personality. This isn't just an autobiography. This is Cath Kidston's autobiography!' --Making magazine, July 2013

About the Author

One of Britain's leading and most loved designers, Cath Kidston is best known for her vintage-inspired homewares, clothing and accessories including Cath Kidston bags and purses. Cath began her career as an interior designer before opening her first retail shop in London in 1993, where she sold vintage fabrics and antique furniture. Now with more than 40 stores and concessions in the UK, plus more in the Republic of Ireland, Japan and South Korea, Cath Kidston Ltd is now a presence on almost every high street. In 2010, Cath was awarded an MBE in recognition of her services to business. To date, Cath has published four bestselling project books - Make!, Sew!, Stitch! and Patch! - that encompass a wide range of disciplines and finished items, from sewing and patchwork to cross stitch and needlepoint. Alongside these books sit two complete kits packaged in a unique tin - The Knitting Book and The Crochet Book are perfect for beginner knitters or crocheters and make ideal gifts. In addition to her books, Cath also has a very successful stationery line (also published by Quadrille).
