London / Haute Couture at The Fashion Textile Museum

Years ago, when I trained to be a fashion stylist, I studied the History of Fashion. Thanks to my experience in fashion, I've already worked with gorgeous contemporary gowns, and last week, I attended the Fashion Textile Museum's showing of their Haute Couture archives. I had the privilege of getting up close to original couture gowns (wearing white gloves, of course!), including 1950's Dior and Chanel, 1960's Dior (by Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent), and more recent acquisitions such as Christian Lacroix, and that mesh Oscar gown by Elie Saab for Halle Berry!
