Hi, again! I’ve popped back in to direct you to a bit of fashion history reading over at The Handmaker’s Factory blog. I’ve contributed my first article (of many, hopefully) and I’d love to know what you think!
FYI: Thanks for the sick baby well wishes. The kid (the boy twin, he of the always-gets-sick-first-weak-immune-system) did stay home again, today. Mostly sleeping. And taking advantage of more TV viewing than usual. He should be good to go for tomorrow, hopefully.

Congratulations on your article . . . it’s very well done, too! 🙂
Thanks so much!!
Great article Mr Jaxon’s story is so inspirational, shame he’s not known more of. Hope baby well soon
Congrats on the article! It was a very good read. Although it upset me that I’ve never heard of him before, not even in the fashion history class I took in college. But I suppose that’s not surprising. It reminds me of the often absent history of minorities in architecture.
I would love to learn more about him. Great article!
Where can I found out more about him?
Congratulations! I LOVE your post! Beat back a lot of stereotypes all at once. Learned a lot of new information.
Great article (congrats)!!!!!! I wonder what Jay’s parents thought when he dropped out of law school to enter the fashion world!
Congrats on the article!! I have had your post bookmarked for days now to remind myself to go over and read it, but then my son got sick AGAIN, then I got sick AGAIN, and I don’t know where my time is going……anyway, all this to say, I am very much looking forward to reading your article when I have fifteen uninterrupted minutes (all together) without a little guy wiping snot on me or demanding to watch Elmo videos. 🙂
Great, great article – congratulations again. It’s really disturbing that Mr. Jaxon has been left out of fashion history — but I’m glad you were able to bring at least our attention to him! I love the idea of this young guy coming to Paris and shattering the ideas of what a couturier looked like. And I love the photo of him — that jacket is absolutely impeccable!
