COSTUME JOURNAL 37 #3 2007
Your Editor, Suzanne McLean delivered another bumper copy of the Costume Journal, Volume 37 Number 3, before the Annual General Meeting November 2007, again with colour photos on front and back covers, and this time, 20 pages of great information and interest. We plan to transfer some of its highlights to this website.
In the meantime, below is one of the many colour illustrations in the Vol. 37, Number 2 issue of the Costume Journal. It shows a page from Jonathan Walfordâ€™ s book Ready To Tear, on paper clothing. There was a Profile of Jonathan in that issue, tracing his life from a family immersed in fashion to becoming a collector of antique clothing, then to doing fashion shows and lectures in the Vancouver area while attending Simon Fraser University. In Toronto, Jonathan was curator at the Bata Shoe Museum, but is now a freelancer with his partner Kenn Norman in Kickshaw Productions, setting up exhibitions or travelling museum collections. They are also now working to create The Fashion History Museum in the Waterloo area. Jonathanâ€™s book, The Seductive Shoe, is listed and the cover shown on our Events page, and there is a review of both his books in the Costume Journal issue (37/2) listed above.
