In Episode 1, Ana Kinsella and Stevie Mackenzie-Smith talk about beginnings. We meet Abigail, who decided to make her own wedding dress for a beginning of her own, and Kate O’Donnell, who built up a wardrobe from scratch when she transitioned. Plus, a diary of those all-important first-day-at-work outfits from Colleen Kelsey in New York, and writer and cook Rebecca May Johnson shares a story of satin trousers for Loved and Lost.
