What Writers Need to Know about Fashion

I’ve always loved cool fashion. In my latest novels, The girl from Paris, Vien is a young Parisian seamstress who loves to dream about beautiful clothes. Moving from post-World War I Paris to New York, she designs exquisite clothing for her wealthy clients and falls in love with the city in some of the most iconic venues of New York’s great jazz age. While I love the setting, and adore weaving cool places into my books, I found that paying more attention to what my characters were wearing than usual was not only rewarding, but brought a lot to the writers.
