Costumes from The Duchess

5.4.10 - 17:40
Last weekend I went to a big sewing show. There were lots of stalls selling beautiful materials from hand dyed silks to plastic buttons but possibly the best part was the exhibition space. Many talented textile artists had their work on display. I enjoyed seeing what people could do with fabrics not involving clothing - especially the 3d forms.

However I thought you guys might be intersted in this bit - there was an exhibition of dresses from the film The Duchess. They were freaking amazing. The fabrics were so detailed and rich. They looked pretty heavy though, check out those bustles.
