Menna van Praag Hi Rekha,

Thanks so much for your question! I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. I was first inspired by the street: All Saint's Passage, a place I've always found enchanting, ever since I was a little girl. It's a street with magic in it. So then I imagined the shops (in addition to the real ones) that might populate the street. I love dresses - I buy all mine at Karen Millen on Market Street, Cambridge, they are quite beautiful! - and don't you find that you can feel totally transformed by a perfect dress? So I began thinking about magic dresses that could actually change your life! And so the story began to unfold...
