Next Year in Milan - Dressing for Napoleon




I'm proud to be involved in a major exhibtion of clothing dated 1790 - 1820. It is the largest specialist collection of womens clothing and accessories of this period in the world. I'll keep updating progress and dates but here is a sneak preview of some of the dresses.
