Edna Woolman Chase was the editor in chief of Vogue from 1914 to 1952
My signature style has been influenced from my past experiences, love of color and fabrics, and my willingness to challenge myself to keep on learning new things.
I created this jacket as my submission to the Project Run and Play "Signature Style Challenge".
As a youngster, I loved to read. I read all the fourteen different Wizard of Oz books.
Did you know there is even a map of the Land of Oz that was first issued in 1932?
I use to refer to it as I read the books and add new landmarks on my copy of the map.
The original illustrator of The Wonderful Wizard of OZ was W. W. Denslow, and his illustrations are quite charming.
These are the images that I used on my jacket, and not the Hollywood version of "The Wizard of OZ."
|The Cowardly Lion|
|The Tin Woodman|
The Matching Hat
There are many more wonderful characters in the story that are not shown in the movie.
The first character lives in the Country of the Quadlings. He tried to prevent Dorothy and her friends from getting to the Good Witch of the South. He is a HammerHead.
The second character is a Kalidah, which is a great beast with a body like a bear and a head like a tiger.
Notice the 9 hole buttons that I used to create the word "OZ."
These COOL monogram buttons are available in 2 sizes and many colors.
Since these buttons are hard to find, I am providing this link to the fabric shop that I purchased the 9 hole buttons and large snaps. You can purchased the buttons by giving them a telephone call .
And now for the most important part of this outfit... the model.
. . . Always glad to be home,
Deborah and Miss E
