I recently had the distinct honor of presenting a paper at Oxford University at
Fashion: Exploring Critical Issues, an interdisciplinary conference.My paper was titled
Fashion in Illustration, Not as Illustration: Accidental Fashion Illustrators of the 1950's and 1960's. This was an academic paper and while I am proud of being accepted,and found it so very interesting, you know where my heart lies.So, with the little free time that I had,off I went to capture the little bits of that wonderful townwhere and when I could.
I fought off jet lag and set out that first afternoon.
The next morning, I had but a couple of hours until the conference started. So, I started out a little early to find some coffee and just take it in.
Suddenly, the streets were filled with hundreds of flowing robes and regalia. I had stumbled into the middle of a graduation ceremony!
In just a few minutes, it was over, and the bicycles, the icons of Oxford were back.
