Jean Muir was at the forefront of British fashion and design for more than 25 years. In this book, published to tie in with a Channel 4 television series, she traced the design, making and showing of a collection, in a series of insights into the creative process.

Throughout the book the emphasis is on craftsmanship and attention to detail, the text is supported by drawings and photographs from Jean Muir's own archives and those of leading fashion journals such as "Vogue" and "Harpers & Queen", together with photographs of the author at work.
