More Info →Joan Klee dressed for Palmerston North 50th Jubilee

Joan Klee is dressed in an outfit she created for the Palmerston North Diamond Jubilee Parade. It caused quite the stir at the time because of its transparent bottom half. She was a window-dresser for the department store Collinson and Cunninghame, thought to be the first qualified female window-dresser in the country. She was instructed in the art of window-dressing by Claude Dixon, who had traveled to the United States to study at the prestigious Macy's Department Store. Joan Klee married Kenneth Lindsey McDonald.
