A sophisticated fashion designer falls in love with a fiery young woman, and nothing is the same again.
London in the 1950s. As the city finally begins to thrive in a post-war boom, fashion is a focal point among the upper crust of society. Designer Reynolds Woodcock is seen as a king in the most glamorous circles, adored for creating beautiful outfits for celebrities, heiresses, and royalty.
For Woodcock, it's all about elegant lines, beautiful textures, and feminine silhouettes. Which is exactly what he sees in Alma. After a lifetime of being unlucky in love, Woodcock is plunged into brand new territory when he falls for the strong-minded and much-younger woman. The two enter a whirlwind romance, which breathes new life into Woodcock's meticulous routine and opens Alma up to a whole new world of possibilities.
But, like any great artist, his obsessive tendencies are both a gift and a curse. And as he begins to focus his anxieties on Alma, their epic love story takes on a sinister tinge. She may be a muse, but she has a voice – and she wants to use it.
