About the George Gross Book

Read how George Gross came from Nazi Holocaust beginnings to become one of Australia's greatest fashion designers. The unvarnished truth behind one of Australia’s best known fashion labels reads like a thriller. THREADS – The untold story of fashion house George Gross & Harry Who – is an action and fun-packed ride that is heart-wrenching at times, and yet bursting with hilarious celebrity anecdotes. 

Charting the highs and lows in the life of designing wunderkind George Gross, it includes his past as a Hungarian Holocaust survivor and flight from the devastation and poverty of war-torn Europe, his bond as a twin, the passion behind his “secret” fifty-year love affair, and tales from the glittering and gossipy world of haute couture. This stunning account of one talented man’s rags to riches rise to the very top of the fashion industry will take your breath away.
