WOW FACTOR: 150 Years of Collecting Bold Clothes is the WRHS’s 150th Anniversary Exhibition. The galleries will be open until April 22, 2018 in the Chisholm Halle Costume Wing. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out this wonderful exhibition, you still have time!

MMC was able to go behind the scenes for a closer look at these beautiful garments.

One of Phyllis Peckham’s legacies is the fashion she left to the WRHS. She would have worn this Oscar de la Renta gown to one of the many theater openings in Cleveland’s Playhouse Square. The heavy embellishment and historically inspired lace trimmings add humor to an otherwise simple dress.

The jeweled feline design and flowing feathers epitomized Sarah Sato’s love of whimsy and drama. The designer George Halley was known for these qualities and his glamorous evening wear – which might surprise those who knew him while growing up on a farm in Alliance, Ohio.


From Christian Dior to Oscar de la Renta, and Audrey Hepburn to LeBron James, you will see fifteen decades of fashion icons. Don’t miss WOW FACTOR ~ 150 Years of Collecting Bold Clothes.

“Top coat, top hat,
And I don’t worry ’cause my wallet’s fat
Black shades, white gloves,
Lookin’ sharp lookin’ for love
They come runnin’ just as fast as they can
‘Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man”
Sharp Dressed Man, ZZ Top

A Nod to Nehru

Kimmy and I are often inspired by vintage patterns, fabrics and details. We love collecting and researching vintage patterns from around the world and from different era’s.

Working from our home studios today, I find myself in love with vintage Meditation Tunics and Guru Shirts from the 1960’s. They all seem to have the classic Nehru Collar, inspired by apparel worn by Jawaharlal Nehru, the Prime Minister of India from 1947 to 1964.

Celebration Of Life… and Color!

The first two weeks of November is dedicated to the souls of our departed loved ones- hoping they come back for a visit! This “belief” dates back to ancient Aztecs and still holds true for Catholics and Mexicans and other religions and cultures today.
Believers create altars with colorful “patterned” art like skulls and masks…
skulls
…along with music, flowers, food, lighting candles and prayer.
We believe in the POWER of PRAYER…and the POWER of strong, bold and colorful PRINTS!!!

While working on our line of tunics and toppers, we discovered how happy and “ALIVE” these colorful prints make us feel!!
We are excited to share this with you come Spring/Summer 2017!

Celebrate the ones who help make our lives a little more smoother
– remember who helps “carry the crown” in our every day life.

Happy November!

And sew it begins

“What you think, you become.
What you feel, you attract.
What you imagine, you create.”
