The book




The truth spilling out on over 380 pages you don’t want to miss.


She did it! Read, and you can, too!

BEHIND THE SEAMS is a hybrid: a business book/biography with engaging stories from the trenches. Twenty-three absorbing chapters will have readers discovering tips for starting and running a business. Dos, don’ts, should-haves and might-haves are all covered as you journey with Marilyn through the fluctuations and unpredictability of retailing, so elusive in the fashion biz. Enjoy 40 years of adventures in retail, fashion, fantasy, art and music.

Each chapter includes revealing anecdotes that showcase Marilyn’s adventures in starting and ending companies and introduces the reader to personalities and humorous escapades, some of which will leave you in “stitches”.

Also included is “Marilyn’s Maxims”, offering advice at the end of each chapter from a successful entrepreneur who’s been there, done that: pointers for others to follow.

Delivered in an easygoing, conversational manner, as shared with writer Peter Jennings. The combination of anecdotes and advice presents the reader with warm wit and wisdom, revelations within the confessions, and sage counsel from the insights.
