|Dita von Teese wears VivienneWestwood|
Last month I caught, by chance, a visiting exhibition from the V & A.......
"Unveiled" 200 years of wedding fashion.
Not your typical Kiwi experience, a real 'girly' show and more than well attended. Lots of eye candy, with film clips and interactive sites ( as in 'post your own wedding photos') Te Papa excels in visitor participation. I was happy to leave R in the cafe with a new book and spend a couple of hours by myself ,having a good look around.
|dress and coat c.1965|
One of my favorite wedding dresses was worn in 1969 by Pamela Harlech, alas I cannot locate a still, but you can see the dress here, in this link. ...a news clip that was also being shown as part of the exhibit.
So, I am showing a dress and coat from about the same time (for sale in my shop, wouldn't you know)
