My Mother's Wedding Dress Summary


My Mother's Wedding Dress by Justine Picardie

Justine Picardie tells a sequence of stories that reveal the fabric of the past, and how a family has fashioned itself through the clothes that they have worn: from her mother's black wedding dress to her first party frock, a translucent winged fairy outfit that provided an early lesson in what we uncover, and what we cover up. She also tells of her encounters with fashion designers - Karl Lagerfeld and Donatella Versace, among others; conversations with supermodels, and her search for Charlotte Bronte's ring. MY MOTHER'S WEDDING DRESS unravels why we care so much about clothes - the white satin and feathers and little black dresses with which we armour ourselves; the material of our lives.
