It certainly got me thinking ... two-thirds of the way through and my brain is fizzing like Alka-Seltzer ... Why Fashion Matters applies the mental jump leads and makes you think about what you wear, how you wear it and where it came from. --The Guardian
As much a personal manifesto as a multi-layered exploration of the significance of fashion in society ... thought-provoking ... designed to be dipped in and out of with ease ... Corner races through her subjects elegantly and succinctly. --The Financial Times
Lucid ... you don't have to take in the entire book at once. You can return to it later - and you will ... Chock-full of references to pop culture and history. --Dressful.com
Combined info and inspo, peppered with facts, punchy quotes and personal insight. The natural teacher in Corner shines through in her writing ... a thought-provoking read delivered with gentle authority ... I can see myself returning to it again and again for reference ... an essential read for any aspiring fashion industry professional or fashion student. --Style London
Thoughtful ... cue loads of facts that'll wow your friends at the pub. --Glamour
A cool manifesto for flicking through that it's rather hard to disagree with. --TwinFactory.co.uk
Engaging. --Metropolitan (Eurostar)
