Seeing Linda..

Francesca and I met up with Linda at the Fashion and Textile Museum in Bermondsey on Friday and we had a delightful afternoon! The Museum was showing a stunning collection of Horrocks fashions, from day dresses to fabulous bathing ensembles, as well as some very glamorous dressing gowns!....what was so beautiful were the open sketchbooks and original paintings of some of the amazing 50's textile designs. Apologies for the shocking photography...I know Becky, I can hear you groaning, but I thought you would still like to see some pics!
