Spike Milligan And Kaia Stanford For Everglaze

1962/1991. Silver gelatin photograph, captioned, dated and signed in pencil in lower margin, 37.8 x 29cm.

This photograph was taken while British comedian Spike Milligan was in Australia in 1962, filming a comedy series for the ABC. The image was part of the promotion for a major charity event on the Australian fashion calendar, presented by the Australian Women’s Weekly and the Myer Emporium, featuring only the work of Australian designers. The event was well-publicised, including a headline reading “Spike the Goon clown shows how fashions can be fun.”

Everglaze was the name of an American-engineered cotton used by fashion designers. Ref: John Oxley Library, SLQ.
