Did you know? The first issue of Vogue Pattern Book was published in 1920, making 2020 the hundredth anniversary of Vogue Patterns Magazine. Bonus points if you know that the original title was Vogue Pattern Quarterly.
I’m pleased to announce that I’m among the contributors to the upcoming Heritage issue of Selvedge Magazine. My piece is called “Maison McCall,” and it’s about McCall’s interwar couturier patterns. Update: Read a preview of my article here.
Did you know McCall’s shares its founding year with the Metropolitan Museum of Art? Both are celebrating their 150th anniversaries in 2020.
Selvedge has both print and digital editions. Due to the coronavirus, this issue won’t be on newsstands, but it is available for pre-order. (Preview the Heritage issue here.) Selvedge 95 is out June 15th from selvedge.org.
