ADFAS Societies across Australia have enjoyed meeting Claudia Chan Shaw – fashion designer, TV and radio presenter, collector, and ADFAS lecturer – and hearing her well researched and lavishly illustrated talks on a range of topics related to design, fashion and architecture. For ADFAS Newcastle, Claudia presented on 29 August, a special interest session in the morning and a lecture to members and guests in the evening. Several members stepped forth in clothes they bought from the boutique in Sydney’s Queen Victoria Building where Claudia and her mother, Vivian Chan Shaw presented their unique fashion range. As the boutique closed in 2014, it shows that ADFAS members don’t easily discard the garments they treasure! Claudia was delighted to be photographed with these unlikely models.
