Synopsis

Features full page fashion illustrations throughout (on color devices, these are viewable in rich four color!)

What if a beautiful dress could take you back in time?

Fashion-obsessed Louise Lambert knows everything about the late-great clothing designers and anything vintage. When she receives a mysterious invitation to the Traveling Fashionista Vintage Sale, Louise is so there!

Marla and Glenda, two eerie salesladies, convince Louise to don a glittering evening gown, and poof! she finds herself transported onboard a luxurious cruise ship in 1912. Louise relishes the glamorous life and decadent closets of this opulent era until she realizes- she's on the Titanic!

Will Louise be able to save herself and change the course of history, or is she destined to go down with the ship?
