I can’t wait to start reading this book by fashion journalist, Felicity Green (pictured). Felicity is something of a ground-breaker; the first editor to appoint a men’s fashion columnist on the Daily Mirror (most of her career was spent with The Mirror Group).
The sixties was such a pivotal moment in fashion – it’s when everything changed and Felicity charts her career in that time. Changing perceptions of fashion, from a fluffy, ladies only interest subject, and giving it validity across the sexes was Felicity’s challenge.. and oh my goodness, was she challenged! From designers who wanted to decorate her pages with bows and flowers to obstinate editors who thought paper dresses were utter nonsense, she certainly had her work cut out.
She is a strong, directive woman that quite literally changed the way we perceive fashion and how we read about it in print. She is now 87 with a catalogue of fashion adventures under her belt and some incredible career highlights: I really cannot get this on order quickly enough! The hardback is £26.99 on pre-order at Amazon HERE.
