Product Details

Lady Mary Heath.


Lady Mary Heath was born Sophie Catherine Theresa Mary Peirce-Evans in 1896 in Limerick County, Ireland. Over time, while her name became shorter, her list of bona fides grew exponentially. A few highlights:
    - Dispatch rider in WWI,
    - Published poet,
    - Published author,
    - Set world records in high jump and javelin throw,
    - First woman member of the London Light Aeroplane Club,
    - Licensed to fly both privately and commercially.


In February 1928, she embarked on the expedition that
would make her world-famous: the first solo flight by a woman from South Africa to England. When she arrived in London, she stepped out of the plane wearing a silk dress, fur coat, and black straw hat.


All style.


She declared flying to be “so safe that a woman can fly across Africa wearing a Parisian frock and keeping her nose powdered all the way.”
Not a stretch to imagine she would appreciate this silk jumpsuit, too.
