ART DECO IS HISTORY
Last night we went to the Museum of Vancouver to listen to guest curator Ivan Sayers discuss his (and Claus Jahnke’s) beautiful collection of vintage Art Deco dresses. There is little doubt why the event was sold out, Ivan is a fantastic story-teller and his knowledge of fashion history is staggering. Ivan walked everyone through the Art Deco Chic Exhibit and talked about all 77 garments on display. The top 10 finalist from the Art Deco Design Challenge were also on hand and they were able to discuss their garment designs with Ivan, Claus and MOV Curator Joan Seidl. The top three designs were produced and put on display last month in the foyer of the Art Deco exhibit, so it was good to see the student’s creations get the spotlight.
It was great to poke around the exhibit again and see visitors experience our hard work. Probably the last time Sue & I will get to visit before the show closes next week (Sept 23rd) and then it will be gone forever. If you haven’t seen Art Deco Chic yet… do yourself a favour and DO NOT MISS OUT.
