I’m already pushing my work schedule with my classes, but how badly would I like to attend this local program? Can someone go for all of us?

African-American Fashion Designer
Ann Lowe designed this wedding gown
for Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in 1953.
The BWOF version ran in May 2008.
Oh wow! That sounds like a fabulous lecture! Jackie’s gown, how beautiful and how special, too, that it has a much larger cultural significance than just being Jackie O’s.
Looks fantastic, I would love to go and see that. I adored Jackie’s wedding dress, I adore the whole Jackie look in general.
Man would I love to go!
Great looking gowns.
I nominated you for an award please go to my website to see the rules.
Wow! Just looked up Rosemary Reed Miller to do some reading on her. She’s DJ Spooky’s mom! Not only has she chronicled history, she has quite a story to tell, too.
Oh, I wish I could! It sounds like an amazing lecture… and such gorgeous gowns! That first one (with the full skirt) is Jackie’s? Wow!
Dear Cidell, Thank you for your wonderful, inspirational blog. I wondered if you knew that the lecture, Threads of Time, must be inspired by the books, Threads of Time, now in its third edition. I just bough it on Amazon and look forward to reading it.
Your admirer, Lynn
For anyone who is interested, Elizabeth Keckley’s autobiography (she was Mary Todd Lincoln’s dressmaker, and that poor woman’s only true friend, I think) is online at Project Gutenberg.
Cidell, I heard her a couple of years ago. I enjoyed it tremendously. But if I could get off work on Wednesday, I go again in a New York minute. She used to own a boutique in DC until rents went crazy. I’mjoing Cidell here, if some one can go, please do! I just realized it’s in February, I might be able to swing it.
Thanks for the heads up!
