You always find something different to delight us! I am also glad to say you were the first with the right answer to my quiz: Andree Putman it is and I have a post on her. Ciao.
Dear Gaye, what beautiful pictures, that purple is divine. I've just interviewed a friend who's a costume designer, she used to go out dressed as Elizabeth I quite often in the Eighties. There are some snaps of her in a homemade outfit that she wore to John Galliano and Jasper Conran's costume ball they had in the early 80's I think you'll like xx
