Pat Cleveland with her mother, the artist Ladybird Cleveland, in photograph by Carl Van Vechten. I have interviewed Pat via email, but I only had the pleasure of meeting her in person last night in the tents at New York Fashion Week.  I had planned to post Ladybird Cleveland soon anyway - but I had no idea she was Pats mother until she told me last night! Needless to say, I am very happy that Pat brought this photo to my attention
