Christie's of London...

I was so chuffed when Pat, head of Christie's fashion department, asked if they could borrow a wasp waisted mannequin for an up coming auction of antique and vintage clothing....of course I said "yes!"
Pat kindly sent me a catalogue and here are a few of the gorgeous gowns and, of course, my mannequin..she's the crushed velvet claret one.  They liked her so much they decided to keep her!

 It's a beautiful catalogue....especially the back cover.
The sale was today.  I do hope it went well.
Thank you Pat.

Gorgeous, I miss not working around the corner from Christies, most of my Victorian clothes I bought from them many moons ago, they always have really excellent quality costume - and your mannequin displays them a treat.

Oh my goodness - how fantastic! I am very happy for you and over the years as I followed I witnessed your mannequins becoming increasingly more sought after and popular. Good for you!
