Joan Klee (middle) is dressed in an outfit she created for a 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, and was 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
