Silk : The Pickfords are just your average family. 1920s Cheshire. A time of great glamour and decadence, high living and loose morality. A time where anything goes - and does. Amber Vrontsky is the heiress to the wealthy Pickford dynasty, presided over by the formidable Blanche. Obsessed with social climbing, Blanche wants nothing more for her granddaughter than a titled husband - a prize which she herself failed to secure, despite her immense wealth. But free spirited Amber is intent on forging her own artistic career with the silk she loves so much. Unable to disobey Blanche, however, she moves to society London to become a debutante - and enters a world of illicit affairs, drug-taking, gambling, lavender marriages! From the lavish decadence of society London to the opium dens of the Far East, the chic boutiques of Paris to the Nazi-controlled streets of Berlin, Silk spans the depravity and the glamour of this tumultuous time.
