CAROLINE CASS Age: 60 Writer of autobiographies and books on contemporary British and American art "
I'm a hippy at heart, with an updated twist. I love long skirts and boots, with great jackets and belts slung loosely around my waist. I had no idea what to expect from today, but I have had fantastic fun and was thrilled to find myself surrounded by such beautiful clothes. I am, of course, very familiar with Jean Muir and her fabulous matte jersey dresses, and I have worn some of her pieces in the past. They fit so perfectly and make you look instantly better with a wonderful feminine shape. I chose the long jersey dress because it was so striking and made me feel so glamorous.
My opinion of Jean Muir has definitely changed. I had been familiar with her clothes in the past but had grown to think that they were outdated and old-fashioned. In fact, they have retained the beautiful jersey dresses and coats and the things I love, but have updated them, and they are somewhat funky.
