|Historical Notes||The Interiors and Fashion Exhibit at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair was part of the massive World of Commerce and Industry complex, which spread along the length of Broad Street for over 500 feet. Frederick & Nelson and other Seattle department stores worked with fair planners to develop the Fashion Pavilion exhibits and show. The Fashion Pavilion occupied 9,000 square feet and was designed to stage a fashion show with an adjacent area for exhibiting products from American textile and clothing companies. The theme of the exhibit was "The Miracle of American Fashion" and four daily fashion shows showcased mid-priced women's apparel from 20 clothing companies. Vogue magazine produced the shows and furnished scripts and commentators. |
