Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953

IMG_6071Did you know that Sylvia Plath dreamed of being a fashion editor at “the intellectual fashion magazine” Mademoiselle? She did manage to be chosen out of many young women from Smith College to be one of the special guest editors during the summer of 1953. This is a fascinating book by Elizabeth Winder about what the fashion world was like at this time in New York City, and to be a young woman in that environment. It’s a part of Sylvia Plath’s life that most do not know about. I highly recommend this book you.
