Viola, great story. It goes to show how important good contacts were.. for a girl with an ordinary background.

George Edwardes was a mentor: he persuaded her to go to Berlin with him to see the new show in German.

Designer to the rich and famous, Lucile Duff-Gordon styled her makeover and designed the costumes.

Who else helped her on her way?
