This shirt/blouse is a miniature I did for the late photographer Ruth Bernhard (1905-2006). This shirt reminded her of “Stonewall” and now all of the friends she has had over the years who have succombed to AIDS. This fabric is form the early 1980’s and shown here with a pointed collar and a tapered hemline. As you can see it has a small kerchief in the pocket that was actually placed there by Ruth in 1997.
