Today was a busy day for us at Costume College. For our class on Charles Worth, we brought two original Worth dresses from our collection: one an evening gown from the late 1880s – early 1890s and a wedding gown from the late 1870s. We’ll be posting more about soon, so in the meantime, we salute you Mr. Worth! 🙂

Here’s a little promotion for Costume College. I’ve laid my suit out and I’m ready to go. It should be a lot of fun. 🙂
The weather here in LA has been pretty warm lately and when that happens, one can not help but think of going to the beach. 🙂 Here are a few views from the 1880s:
And now for a somewhat idealized view:
Stay cool ths summer! 🙂
Life is short, use the lace! We encourage our customers to agree to this as well. Antique lace is a treasure that needs to be appreciated and gently taken care of, and in most cases…gowns were constructed so the lace could easily be removed for cleaning, then re-attached by hand. 🙂
Good morning, Monday…thank you for these ten minutes of peace, probably the only ones this week. *yikes*
