Talk by William Banks-Blaney - about his new book '25 Dresses', fabulous iconic dresses and their links with history, fascinating and intriguing, inspiring a yen to learn more. Got to meet him at last and the man is as interesting as his subject. Was able to discuss and show him my hopeful Vionnet dress - sadly in tatters! I love it to bits, but will go with advice and accept full restoration would be at expense of its integrity so will endeavour to conserve it as a display piece and cast lustful glances at it and fantasise!!
Have been given opportunity to visit William Vintage for a rummage behind the scenes - fantastic, can't wait !!!
