Summary

The author describes and discusses the sources of her inspiration. Rut even more clearly than her words, her work speaks for her. Flower dresses in the shapes of waratahs, shimmering opal silks, patterns of fallen gum leaves on taffeta, fluorescent rainbow prints, evening gowns in Indian sari silk draped in classic styles, coolamon tops in the colours of the Aboriginal palette, designs in all their exciting profusion, prove that Linda Jackson is indeed a unique fashion designer with the eye and technique of an artist.
