The Wedding Suit

 
9780006498650: The Wedding Suit

A novel of passion, corruption, greed and murder set against the background of the British fashion industry.

When the head of a leading fashion empire is murdered, the result is a period of vicious boardroom in-fighting between the remaining family members for control. It is the old man’s daughter, Augustine, who shines forth as his natural successor – but the rest of the family want to sell out to multinational competition.

As Augustine struggles to keep the empire afloat, she comes across the diaries and letters of an ancestor, the Jewish immigrant Rosa, who founded the company in London’s East End a century before. As she reads of how the rag trade industry was built on suffering and persecution, yet sees how love of the business of designing and making clothes shone through, Augustine grows even more determined to succeed in this trade that is in her blood. She is determined, too, to solve the dark mystery that surrounds her father’s death and now threatens her chances of love and happiness.

From the Back Cover:

Sweeping from the sweatshops of late Victorian London to the big business showrooms and catwalks of the present day, 'The Wedding Suit' is the ultimate novel of glamour, passion, suffering and corruption in the fashion industry.

As Gabriel, the head of Zigo fashion empire, lies mysteriously murdered in a murky backstreet, the struggle for the family-owned business begins. Kitty, Gabriel's daughter, is marrying the son of a rival and being forced to leave the trade to let the city dealers and men in suits take over.

Then she is given the Wedding Suit – a beautifully-crafted garment that was rescued from the pogroms in Russia and handed down through the generations. Rosa, a young Jewish girl, was the first in the family to own the suit, and the extraordinary story unfolds of how she struggled from sweated labour to create her own fashion empire – the same business which has seemed to kill Kitty's father, and which she will now do anything to save…

'Whether you like intrigue, passion or suspense, this novel has something for you'
ABERDEEN EVENING EXPRESS ('Naked Angels')
