                Sally Congdon-Martin cut her teeth as a fashion writer while living in Shanghai, China, writing for local magazines about the fashion and retail scene.  She returned to the States and attended graduate school at Drexel University, earning her Master of Science in Fashion Design.  In that time, in addition to studying design intensely, she had enriching experiences such as assisting in the Drexel Historic Costume Collection, studying couture techniques in Paris, working the obligatory but none-the-less wonderful internships, and showing her work in the International Arts of Fashion competition.  In addition to her endeavors as a writer and designer, Sally works as a Pattern-maker/Technical Designer at a company outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is her second book on fashion designers.  As with her first book, she hopes this book will again bring recognition and opportunity to the students and appreciation for the schools that have shaped them. Ms. Congdon-Martin states, "The work in this book belongs to the designers, and I thank them for allowing it to be in print."
Ms. Congdon-Martin’s book sells for $39.99 and can be purchased through the publisher at or your local bookseller, as well as, numerous online retailers.
