Selvedge and New Lace (Miss C in the "Ageless" Issue)

I'm excited to have two pieces in Selvedge's "ageless" issue (#64), which was just published in London.

My first piece is a look at lace--in Chloe, Kenzo, Roberto Cavalli, and Bora Aksu.

The second is a "design file" piece about 101-year-old Italian designer Micol Fontana, who inspired the issue. She and her sisters designed the clothes for Ava Gardner in The Barefoot Contessa, as well as Anita Ekberg's iconic black strapless dress for the fountain scene in La Dolce Vita.

And then I'm delighted to featured on the contributors' page, wearing a favourite straw hat.

It reminds me, just a bit, of this one:

But I'm even more delighted (and surprised) to be pictured directly below textile designer, knitter, quilt designer, and author Kaffe Fassett!

Wow, you and Kaffe, hanging out! I love that photo of you -- great hat. And the articles look wonderful.
