Leading authority on the history and theory of design Charlotte Fiell and her daughter fashion and lifestyle writer Clementine Fiell are joined by designers Nipa Doshi and Kim Colin to look at the central role of women in the history of design.

In their book, Women in Design, the Fiells look at the main women players in fashion, textiles, graphic design, product design and architecture over the last 100 years. These include pioneers who achieved global recognition, such as Ray Eames, Florence Knoll Bassett and Charlotte Perriand, but also others who were equally influential but not so well known.

Charlotte Fiell has written and edited more than 50 books on the history and theory of design including Design of the 20th Century, The Story of Design, and the bestselling 1000 Chairs. Clementine Fiell is editor and writer at Amuse–Vice Media’s online lifestyle platform and has worked as an editor and writer for Pop magazine, Arena Homme+, Vivienne Westwood and Mario Testino.

Colin co-founded London design studio Industrial Facility with English industrial designer Sam Hecht. Clients include Muji, Hermen Miller, Emeco, Mattiazzi and Wästberg. She became a Royal Designer for Industry in 2015, the first woman to be recognised for product and furniture design since the honours were founded in 1936. Doshi runs a London-based studio, Doshi Levien, with fellow designer Jonathan Levien. The studio is internationally renowned for its marriage of culture, technology, industrial design and fine craftsmanship across industries, and clients include B&B Italia, Moroso, Kvadrat, Kettal, and Cappellini.
