            Madame Weigel: the Woman who Clothed the Australasian Colonies looks back over the life of the remarkable Madame Johanna Weigel, paper pattern manufacturer and publisher of Australasia's first fashion journal. With remarkable longevity, her pattern series spanned over 90 year...s from 1878 to 1969, her journal 70 years from 1880 to 1950. Her publications chart a unique history of Antipodean fashion and clothing: what women were sewing, and who they were sewing for. Madame Weigel loved to travel. She referred to herself as 'The Roamer from the Antipodes' with a self-confessed 'wanderlust'. She wrote long travelogues to send back for her readers, now collected together in this book. Along with over 80 images, her story is anchored through her pattern series to show how life, fashion, and style changed over time. Madame's observations were astute, whether of the fashions that she saw, the nationalities she compared, or the conversations she listened to in the luxurious hotels that she loved. She was her own enigma, holding back much of her story in a life that was so public yet so private. Read her story, admire her achievements, enjoy her words, and smile at her adventures.
