Going inside the world of fashion was one of the most interesting (and challenging) jobs I ever did. Fashionistas guard their front doors and their reputations jealously, and nobody would agree to be interviewed until at least one famous other person had already agreed. Tough. But eventually I cracked the runway, and interviewed more than 50 people in the Australian fashion industry.
All of whom probably reeled in shock when they saw the cover that was slapped on the book.
Oh well. Today, the book is still to be found on the shelves of high schools and fashion colleges across Australia.
