Tailor sews tradition into new chancellor's gown
Master tailor Shafiq Beig believes sewing is like poetry, and UWindsor’s incoming chancellor Mary Jo Haddad is his latest muse.
“It was such a pleasure to work with someone like her,” Beig says. “She appreciates the history… She has an eye for my work.”
Beig, assistant production manager at Harcourts custom robemaker in Toronto, has created the gown Dr. Haddad will wear as she confers degrees beginning May 28, when she is officially installed as UWindsor’s eighth chancellor. As Dr. Haddad is the first female in the school’s history to hold the post, it was time to reimagine the square, polyester “tent” her male predecessors wore, Beig said.
