Abstract

Bowbyes retired from teaching at Otago in 1961 and went on to teach at Guelph University in Ontario, Canada from 1963 to 1969. During that time, she was invited to, and presumably attended, fashion shows in Paris. Here are four of those invites: Christian Dior – in the 1960s Marc Bohan was the creative director; Jeanne Lanvin – Lanvin (1867-1946) established the oldest fashion house still in business today; Pierre Cardin – an Italian-born French designer who worked for both Dior and Schiaparelli before establishing his own brand; and the International Wool Secretariat – established in 1937 to promote wool sales for wool growers around the world, including New Zealand.
