From the wild sixties to the sexy seventies, they ruled the world of fashion - and fashion ruled them.
Mackenzie Gold - outrageous, racy, shocking, yet desperately yearning for what she can never have. She's fashion's pop queen, obsessed with designing the hottest threads on the scene.
Mia Stanton - gorgeous, refined, but tormented by the most shattering hang-up a passionate woman can possess. Her designs set trends that reap fame, wealth... and the undying envy of the person who should love her the most.
Coral Stanton - uninhibited, unscrupulous, untrustworthy.
She's Mia's mother, the hellfire editor of a top fashion magazine, a woman prepared to pay any price to get what she wants.
Set against a canvas of free love, passion, ambition and betrayal, LABELS draws you into the world of three women determined to stop at nothing to fulfil their dreams of fashion.
