When Sam, an MIT drop out turned lowly fashion assistant, helps to create a time traveling device, in the form of a stiletto boot, she single handedly threatens to change the future of one of New York’s most prominent industries.
Samantha Tate gave up a promising design engineering career for a chance to pursue her first love: fashion design. But her more geek than chic personality is a liability in the larger than life world of haute couture, where the weak are ripped to shreds like cheap charmeuse.
With the help of a physicist friend, she creates the answer to her dilemma: a funky, time traveling device that allows her to venture seasons ahead in time, a place any designer would sacrifice generations of unborn collections to see. Further complicating matters is the dawning of the biggest fashion war in history, at the center of which is Samantha’s mega successful boss, Ivan Fellippe.
Sam finds herself further ahead than she ever imagined on a reckless adventure that may jeopardize New York’s most elite and change the future of fashion forever.
