The History of Skirts continues…
(One of my favorite Spring 2008 Gary Graham skirts)
On Thursday I received an exciting email from a producer at 1TV in the UK about a five-part series the station is doing on the History of Fashion, and she invited me to participate as their resident "expert" on the history of skirts. It turns out that they are dedicating an entire film to skirt history, mostly 20th and 21st century skirts. Since I've written what might be the only book on the topic, they asked me to come on board. Well, wouldn't you know it, the segment is taping this Friday, April 25, and sadly I don't have the means to jet over there before then. Still, I'm really excited that they are putting this series together and I can't wait to see the show after it airs around May 1. The producer has offered to send me a copy sometime later that month, so stay tuned: I might post a little snippet from the section on skirts!
