CANADIAN DESIGNERS: GROUP SHOT / STYLE OCTOBER 1980

A THROWBACK THURSDAY SPECIAL.
THIS ONE I REMEMBER, VERY WELL.
I HAD NOT LONG BEEN EMPLOYED BY MARILYN BROOKS,
IT WAS MY FIRST BEHIND THE SCENES DESIGNER JOB
I WAS HIRED AS A DESIGN ASSISTANT AFTER DROPPING OUT OF RYERSON AFTER FIRST YEAR.
I HAD INPUT INTO THE COLLECTION,
I PICKED THE BUTTONS,
AND I GOT STOPPED FOR RUNNING A STOP SIGN,
AND ARRESTED FOR HAVING A NON ONTARIO LICENSE
THEY HAD TO COME FROM THE STUDIO TO PICK ME UP FROM THE CRIME SCENE,
AFTER ALL, I HAD THE SHOES!
I WAS ALSO SENT TO LOOK AFTER THE BACK STAGE FOR THE REHEARSAL AND THE SHOW.
MARILYN HAD AMAZING FAITH IN WHO SHE HIRED
“WE ALL PICK UP THE PINS”
“WE WEAR MANY HATS…”*
*(DIRECT MARILYN QUOTES)
IT ALL SET A YOUNG MANS FANTASIES SPINNING INTO REALITES,
AND WAS A BRILLIANT STEP IN MY OWN REMARKABLE CAREER.
THANK YOU MARILYN!
AND THANKS TO ALL THE WONDERFUL CANADIAN DESIGNERS.
AND THE FDAC, FOR THEIR AMAZING TREND SHOWS
ENJOY!
