From the back:
Today, designers like Christian Siriano and Bishme Cromartie carve their own unique paths on a road forged by Maryland-born designers who have influenced fashion on an international scale. They stand on the shoulders of many...the now forgotten Lottie Barton, who styled First Ladies...and industry disrupter Claire McCardell, who helped established the "American Look."
