Bellville Sassoon has been synonymous with high fashion for over 50 years. As Britain’s foremost couture label from the 1960s onwards, founder Belinda Bellville with designers David Sassoon and Lorcan Mullany, dressed many of the world’s most stylish women, including Diana, Princess of Wales. This exhibition traces the history of British glamour from the couture houses of the late 1950s, to the celebrities who became clients of the company. It also explores the influence of ready-to-wear and Vogue patterns.
I think this should be a real treat for anyone who has an interest in fashion. For more information or to buy tickets in advance, please see the website. We'll meet in the shop area, which you can enter before buying a ticket, at 11.00 and go in to the exhibition at 11.15.
