In 1891, Siegmund Harzfeld and the Parisian Cloak Company introduced a new era of commerce and fashion to the residents of Kansas City. The ready-to-wear movement arrived at his flagship Harzfeld’s location along Petticoat Lane, which later expanded its reach through a regional network of satellite stores.

Joe and Michele Boeckholt trace Harzfeld’s fashions with archival photographs and memorabilia. They are authors of Harzfeld’s: A Brief History. They are both graphic designers living in the Kansas City area.
