And I stood in the Life of Manek window with Susan Claassen for 'A Conversation with Edith Head' press party for it's Canadian premiere.
In January 2014 CAFTCAD Sold out it's 4 performances and fashionistas, film aficionados, costume makers and theatre goers filled the seats at the Buddies in Bad Times Theatre for the amusing biographical story of the life of Edith Head.
Here's an article from the Toronto Star regarding the show and a mysterious story of a last minute dress reportedly made for Grace Kelly by Edith, and now in Toronto at costume house Homemade Tarts. And this is the article written by theatre reviewer, and yes, my mother, and the photo in the piece includes the mysterious dress.
Here's 'Edie' with her famous opera token necklace and stunning program designed by Dan Sadaba.
And myself giving Edie flowers as she left the stage, proving that we Canadians have much love for vintage fur.
Just love dressing up, dressing other people up and talking about it. A lot. And laughing too.
