Morgantown 2020 update


We regret to inform you that Morgantown 2020 is canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This is an extraordinary time, and we hope everyone takes care of themselves. We'll be back next year, and our theme will remain Futuristic Fashion.

Here is the Cosmic Connection from the collection of the late Dot Wilson, a longtime artist and collector herself; the artist is her daughter, Pam Rossman, I believe.

I'm prompted to share this delightful book because I've been following a blog, witness2fashion, that delves into the details of how fashion evolves. It's about more than hemlines. Be sure to check it out.
And of course you can purchase this fabulous book by Brenda at Paper Studio Press.

Morgantown Luncheon 2020 update


I've started to mail out the invitations this week--let me know when you get yours!

Here's a paper doll that Sandy Vanderpool created for her set, "Fashion Plate" (2011). The doll and all of the outfits are collaged creations that fit right in with our futuristic theme. Inspiration for our Dress-A-Doll!
