19th Century, 20th Century

Clothing the world of Katherine Mansfield

Well, it’s been almost a week since the Katherine Mansfield talk, and I am mostly recovered, and most of the stuff is washed and put away and life is mostly back to normal!

I’ve seen some of the photographer’s images from the talk, and they look amazing.  Definitely something to look forward to!

For now, here are a few more informal glimpses from my camera, courtesy of various models backstage, and Madame O in the audience during the talk.

Zara from Off-Grid Chic (modeling my green ’20s gown) and Juliet of Crazy Gypsy Chronicles (in the 1910s longline) have a modern technology moment in the middle of historical costuming.

  1. Ah, stained glass windows! So classy a backdrop!
    I’m still working my head around the drapery of the green dress. The whole style of it is so unique – no wonder you wanted to recreate it, being the hands-on costume historian that you are! 😀
