About the Author:

Gail Downey is the co-founder of London boutique and fashion label Weardowney. After working as a fashion model, she began a BA in Fashion Design, and one of her own knitted pieces caught John Galliano's eye. Galliano commissioned a range of knitwear, and Gail ended working solely for Galliano as his knitwear designer until 1989. The Weardowney boutique combines fashion with lifestyle; textiles and handmade articles, flowers, furniture and jewellery, and a collection of UK and international labels. She lives in London. Henry Conway is a freelance writer and journalist. He completed both his BA and MA at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, where he studied the History of Dress. As well as editing the specialist knitwear magazine, the WD biannual, he contributes to magazines and newspapers such as the New Statesman and the New York Times T magazine on fashion and fashion history. He lives in London.
