Dockweilers appreciation for sewing dates back to those feed sack dresses. She remembers how her dad would buy sacks with the same design, but in different colors. Her mother then made Dockweiler and her sister, Elsie, the same outfit, but one dress might be blue while the other was red. When we went to town, people would think Elsie and I were the twins, instead of Dean and I, because we were dressed alike, Dockweiler said. Dockweiler graduated from Sumner High School in 1958. She worked at Fox Produce in Kearney and she and her husband, Danny, married in 1960. She made her own wedding dress. They would have seven children and shed start sewing for them. The little flannel kimonos she made for their first baby son would be worn by the other children as well.

Paris will also see Kenzo, part of the LVMH group, unite its men's and women's collections after first testing the formula last June. - 'Virtually impossible' to create separate shows - For Hywel Davies, fashion programme director at London's prestigious Central Saint Martins design school, the "co-ed" trend is both a financially-sound move but also fits in with the industry's openness to change. "It is about the industry looking how to best present their vision and putting mens and women show together makes commerce sense. Why pay for two shows when you can communicate your message in one?" he told AFP. "I think it is a positive thing that the fashion industry is constantly chaining and looking at new ways of communicating its ideas. Change is good. It would be great if more fashion brands considered other ways of presentation instead of just catwalk shows," Davies added. Financially necessity is even more relevant for smaller brands, such as Sibling, a funky brand created by three British designers which moved to mixed shows with its spring-summer 2015 collection. Creating a show for both men's and women's collections is "a much more realistic process, as well as from a production and design point of view", said Sid Bryan, one of the label's stylists.
