A novel based on the true story behind Jacqueline Kennedy's
iconic pink suit.
On November 22, 1963, the First Lady accompanied her husband
to Dallas, Texas dressed in a pink Chanel-style suit that
was his favorite. Much of her wardrobe, including the pink
suit, came from the New York boutique Chez Ninon where a
young seamstress, an Irish immigrant named Kate, worked
behind the scenes to meticulously craft the memorable
While the two never met, Kate knew every tuck and pleat
needed to create the illusion of the First Lady's
perfection. And when the pink suit becomes infamous, Kate's
already fragile world--divided between the excess and
artistry of Chez Ninon and the traditional values of her
insular neighborhood--threatens to rip apart.
The Pink Suit is a fascinating look at politics, fashion,
and some of the most glamorous women in history, seen
through the eyes of a young woman caught in the midst of an
American breed of upstairs/downstairs class drama.
