Reviews for Switched on: Women Who Revolutionized Style in the 60s

SWITCHED ON by David Wills is a wonderfully evocative tribute to all those marvellous women whose contribution to style in the 60's was life changing. It was an outstandingly exciting, and challenging, time - such fun, such hard work yet with so many happy memories, cleverly encapsulated in this beautifully produced, colourful and fascinating book. I feel honoured to be part of it. -- DAME MARY QUANT
