Through personal and vintage photos, lush photography of her clothes, and quotes from the grand dame herself, you will be awed by the magnitude of her wardrobe and magnanimity of this exceptional woman. This unique fashion biography begins with Harriett’s childhood during the Great Depression, follows her service as a Marine during WWII, her flight from heartbreak to Miami Beach and subsequent marriage, and their accumulation of wealth (and swelling closet full of jaw-dropping fashion) thanks to the Disney World triggered 1960s real estate boom and the community defining land deals of her developer husband.
Stunningly illustrated with over 800 impeccable photographs illustrating her 96 year life and highlighting over 200 of her favorite and most popular looks, the authors explain the connections between Harriett’s life experiences and her fashion choices. Find out why she has so many red coats, why capes are one of her favorite looks, and what fills her pockets. Harriett herself oversaw the photo-shoots and expertly styled every look so that each one is quintessential Harriett.
