We didn’t actually have an official invite but who would miss the opportunity on a sunny summer evening to have a glass of Babycham and attend a vintage fashion show?
The scene was set…..
I think Michael grabbed the best seat in the house…
The whole shop is dressed……
and on with the show………(I am not a fashion photographer, as you can see)…
The dress below was brought in by one of the dealers at the Old Pill Factory, who has a vast collection of clothing, this particular one is not for sale as it was made in the 60’s by her Mother, an artist, who also designed and printed the fabric.
What is your favourite period for fashion?
Everyone worked really hard to put the evening together, it was fabulous and many congratulations to Fiona for pulling it all together.
Oh yes, if you are wondering, Michael was fed before we went, The Old Plough in Witney is a very old Inn, with a lovely tapas menu, not knowing the portion sizes we over ordered, but M still managed to polish most of it off, and leave room for nibbles at the show!
To finish, the window that greated the visitors, Lloyd Loom & toile
A great evening, thank you girls and boys.
Oh yes and I bumped into an old friend that I hadn’t seen for 10 years, more of Shelley and her B&B in Burford coming soon.(If you are visiting and would like info, please get in touch or visit Cotland House)
