Maclean's - November 19 1966
"Susie's a terrific little bird." That's Vidal Sassoon speaking. He's the London hairdresser whose ideas about cutting hair have practically defined the feminine profile in the mid-1960's, and he's talking about Susie Kosovic, a 22-year-old Toronto fashion designer. "I spotted her at a party in Toronto last spring. I couldn't miss her - she was wearing an exact copy of one of my hair styles and this marvelous wild dress she'd designed herself. I was tempted to call her Canada's Mary Quant. But that's not right because Susie has her own thing."
"Susie supervises a fitting in her main shop."
"Susie and her husband Peter share a brunch of cheese and wine in their Toronto town house."
"Even with a rapidly expanding business, Susie does all her own cutting. Here in the workroom with Nina, her head seamstress, she works on the brown-paper patterns that will eventually be translated into cloth."
