Sheila Claydonabout this book: 'The Hollywood Collection' is about fashion and Hollywood.
I wrote it so long ago that I had to think hard to remember what triggered the idea when Samhain decided to republish it under its Retro label. When it came back to me I was transported to a time when Hollywood Glamor wasn't just for the red carpet. In those days a celebrity rarely dressed down, especially the sort of celebrities featured in this book.
A newspaper article about a young, up and coming British dress designer started it all. In those days he was refreshingly young and good-looking. Now, 25+ years later, he is still attractive but the hair and the youthful looks have gone. Who is he? I'm not saying because as far as the reader is concerned, he IS Dominic.
Lilah, the most glamorous of them all, and Jonathan Aiken the photographer, are also based on real people - celebrities in both cases - but again, they must remain my secret although you may have fun trying to guess who they are.
Samantha, the heroine, is solely a product of my imagination, however, as are several of the other celebrities.
It was such a fun story to write. I loved weaving my version of real characters into the story, and I loved researching Hollywood and the fashion industry. I also think The Hollywood Collection is an idea still waiting to be discovered by real life fashion designers...unless I've missed it of course.
what to read next: if you read and liked this book...
