This exhibition was financed by the Faculty Development Fund. Many thanks to David Ford for his invaluable help facilitating the payment of numerous invoices and work approvals.
This online exhibition would have been impossible without the help and support of a talented group of individuals including Wendy Scheir, Kellen Archive Director for her support and assistance with the Adam and Sophie Gimbel Archive; Patrick Michael Hughes for sharing his original research and insight on Sophie Gimbel and the Salon Modern, Carmela Spinelli for her tireless work in augmenting and preserving the Parsons Fashion Archive, Tim Gunn and Marsha Tonkins for providing a creative haven for both the collection and myself and Simon Collins and Steven Faerm for their support during the FDF application process.
