    What a lovely piece of invention – it sounds so almost original. Love to know what the sources are. There are some great real stories about costumiers and designers. I’ll always remember Maria Garde talking about the difficulties of interpreting the swirls around the feet of Leslie Hurry’s designs.

      It’s not an invention but comes from a 1903 American newspaper so finding out what sources the original journalist used to give an overall impression of the art might be a little difficult! Hope you’re well..

    An enjoyable read. It reminded me of attending a 999 call at the back of Berman’s and Nathan’s warehouse in the Hendon area. We had to be shown though endless rows of hanging costumes on the way to the patient. Suits of armour, Napoleonic uniforms, and all sorts of interesting wonders.
    I think the same company later became known as Angels.
    Best wishes, Pete. x
