From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant

It's not often you see high fashion mixed up with Homeland Security, but such is the case in From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant, a 2012 novel by Alex Gilvarry. The story — peppered with well-researched tidbits of true fashion history — is narrated by a Brooklyn-based, Filipino-born womenswear designer named Boy Hernandez, who's also a Guantánamo detainee accused of being linked to a terrorist plot.
