A voice of silk and chiffon… A spirit of brass and iron... A woman who was 95 years old and ready to tell all!
In Her Own Fashion tells the funny, irreverent, true story of Ninette Griffith, who was Fashion Coordinator for Loveman's Department Store in Birmingham, Alabama during the 1950s and 1960s, a time when the downtown department store was a temple of style and fashion. Smart, sassy, ambitious, and unflinchingly honest, Ninette was an elegantly independent woman whose life unfolds in these stories of reckless romance, celebrity hi-jinks, fashion disasters, and the adventures of a life cut from a pattern of her own design.
