I collect photographs for several reasons. I love how you can glimpse into the past to see how people actually dressed, and sometimes a photo helps me assemble an ensemble of clothing and accessories. I also look for photos that help date and document items in my collection.
Between looking for old photos, I managed to read some interesting news.
- Items from the estate of Doris Day, including clothing and costumes, will be sold at auction in April, 2020.
- Feel free to copy this idea of an anonymous knitter in Asheville.
- And in related news, knitting and crafting help in times of crisis.
- Terry de Havilland, “Rock and Roll Cobbler” has died.
- My posting about the button industry in Muscatine, Iowa, led to Liza forwarding this article to me.
- Clothing collector Sandy Schreier’s exhibition has opened at the Costume Institute.
- Will the exhibition of Sandy Schreier’s collection of fashion lead to more demand (and higher prices) in the vintage fashion trade?
- A model for clothing line Nelly Don turned out to be quite the collector.
- What can we learn from sewing clothing from the past?
- And here’s an article sent to me by Nann. You will love seeing this historical embroidery.
