Meet the Author

Anni Sanders and Kerry Seager are co-directors of the successful fashion label Junky Styling which began when the two friends began buying men's suits from secondhand shops and reconstructing them into experimental creations to wear to London clubs in the early 1990s. Their unique creations attracted so much interest that they opened a retail shop which eventually became their own fashion label in 1997.

High-profile Junky Styling clients include Kate Moss, Sadie Frost, Sienna Miller, Gwen Stefani and Russell Brand. Junky Styling has been featured at London and Paris Fashion Weeks.
