To any self-respecting sewing fan, Esme Young needs no introduction. The diminutive judge of The Great British Sewing Bee has a sharp eye for a wonky seam, and an even sharper eye for a good necklace. Here she shares the story of her life in creativity, friendship, and adventure – discovering sewing age 7, making her way as a teen to London and Central St Martins, where her life truly began. From living in a squat and watching The Notting Hill Carnival with David Bowie, to creating costumes for films such as Bridget Jones’s Diary and The Beach and becoming a star of the small screen herself, this is truly a celebration of a creative life lived differently.
