Lolly: From Fishing to Fashion, Reeling in an Unlikely Fashion Success [Paperback]
The gulls glide on the wind and land on the
famous rock planted in the tides while the ocean reaches for Asia. In a
pub one mile inland and north, a writer’s chance meeting with the owners
of a clothing company ignites an agreement─planting the seed for a
novel about the blood, work, fate, and unyielding vision that confounded
the fashion industry and left it examining the path of Lolly.
March of Time and Skin author Jeff Stewart navigates us through the start, deconstruction, and rebirth of Lolly Clothing, the salvation from the bottom of survival to the methods of their success. Told in a beautifully raw, stripped-down style, Lolly: From Fishing to Fashion, Reeling in an Unlikely Fashion Success takes us through the insides of the fashion company and their people with humor, heartbreak, and prose that introduces the fashion process through the world of the writer; moving us along from the effects of guts and consequences to the cathedral of Lolly, and the power of never listening to the odds.
