A New Passion

One of my suppliers in France knew I collected antique fashion plates and by chance sent me a photo of this beautiful framed fashion print from the mid 1800s. More than a fashion picture, it is a work of art. The dresses have been sewn in silk and attached to the picture. The detail and love in this piece is amazing. When it arrived the glass was broken so I was able to run my fingers over the fabric. Imagine that – 160 year old silks? The feeling was extraordinary. I had the glass replaced…and then I went and bought another one, which is in transit as we speak.
