I found several photos of this 1920s woman on a horse. She’s not in typical riding attire, as she could be dressed for almost any outdoor activity with her breeches and socks, and what looks to be a sweater or knit jacket. Click on the photo to see the details a bit clearer.
And now for the news…
- Last week I wrote about the Roddis family exhibition which is currently at the Henry Ford Museum. The New York Times included this exhibition in a piece about displaying fashion as clothing verses fashion as art. Yawn…
- US fashion production is “not a serious option,” according to at least to one “senior designer at a contemporary fashion label that produces all of its products overseas.”
- So, where does that leave Ivanka Trump’s clothing line? Caught between a rock and a hard place? Not necessarily, as her daddy’s latest twitter rant seems to target only those “business[es] that leave[s] our country for another country,” not those already doing business in Asia.
- And does US production actually guarantee ethical treatment of workers?
- What does it mean that a sewing pattern is “factory folded”?
- “The Harris Tweed Authority archive will be brought together in Stornoway for the first time…” I heard they have advertised the job of archivist.
- I try really, really hard not to be offended, but this got me.
- “To stop relying on Western hand-me-downs, African countries are importing Chinese textile companies.”
- The ultimate Punk move.
- Please, someone, buy this poor guy a tie clip!
- Hillary really is just like us.
- Someone tweeted this link to the Mount Vernon website, which shows a fragment of one of Martha Washington’s dresses. It’s so interesting because it brings to mind how “relics” of the famous were once so important. I’ve got to wonder about what happened to the dress. Was it cut apart to distribute to souvenir seekers?
