Happy Birthday to the Space Needle!

Was honored to present on the 1962 World’s Fair history and fashion (cocktail and formal wear) for a private soiree….It was mostly focused on the women (sorry guys…), and I thought it’d be fun to share a few pics from the program.

A Few Quick Highlights:

Built by the Howard S. Wright Construction Company, the iconic Needle represented aspiration, innovation, and all things futuristic.  The World’s Fair theme?  The 21st Century & the space age.

Mad Men

Doing the research both historically and stylistically was far more inspiring and fun than I ever thought it would be….Thanks to our past government officials and World’s Fair Board, Seattle got put on the world’s map for science, technology and beyond…..There were nay sayers, bumps in the road, and setbacks, but what I learned is:  They had vision, tenacity, determination, and…desire.  They were a quality bunch and they made it happen profitably – something that’s uncommon for putting on a World’s Fair.
