Trying to find seamstress who made Page's dragon suits

Recommended Posts

 

Hello. I'm a music journalist, trying to track down the seamstress who made Jimmy Page's white and black dragon stage outfits, to interview for a story for LA Weekly. I've read here and elsewhere the designer was a then Los Angeles-based seamstress known as Coco. Read on a thread within this forum she was living in the UK in 2012. If anyone has a way to contact her and/or knows here full name  please email me at matthewbwake@gmail.com. I would really appreciate the help and time. Below is some of my previous work for LA Weekly.

In some of my JP / LZ research I speculated that the "Coco" Page referred to was Corrine "Coco" Schwab, David Bowie's longtime personal assistant.   I don't have any solid proof of that, except that Page and Bowie knew and spent time with each other (not always healthily, shall we say), and Page's dragon and poppy suits are somewhat "glam" in the same way as Bowie's mid-70s outfits.  Perhaps your research can uncover something more substantial.

that would really rearrange some molecules if proved accurate
