L'élégance à  la française !
Tom Wilson: Ah, oui - mais John Galliano est britannique smile
Some designers just have such fun! A gorgeous dress that I can't imagine wearing!
Tom Wilson: I suspect it may have been worn once on the catwalk!

What a fabulous design, hard to wear in our daily life though... but who cares. Wonderful colour.
Tom Wilson: Quite something, isn't it?

This is a fine series, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray
Wowser. That's one way to keep the men at bay, right?!
Tom Wilson: Not a determined man, Ginnie smile

Not a dress for doing the housework in!
Tom Wilson: Ladies who wear such clothes don't do housework, Chris - that's for those people "below stairs" smile
Imagine walking down the pavement in that Tom. Everyone would have to leap into the road.
Tom Wilson: One couldn't trust such a dress to the street, Chad!

Imagine being that slim!
Tom Wilson: The typical model of the time would probably fit, Lisl, and no-one else!
I have a large pen and ink drawing that reminds me of the painting in the rear of the dress.
Tom Wilson: Interesting!
You wouldn't get through a modern doorway in that Tom
Tom Wilson: I doubt if you'd get through any doorway ever made, Bill - unless it was a set of double doors at the entrance to a large hall!

Amazing dress!
Tom Wilson: Quite astonishing and, I would guess, quite impracticable!
Not the most practical of dresses, advisable not to have a drink all evening!
Tom Wilson: Stii - you could hide quite a few bottles underneath!

You could not get that in something like a Smartcar! You'd need big doorways, too, at home.
Tom Wilson: I doubt if you could get it into a Rolls, never mind a Smartcar!
Fancy fancy
Tom Wilson: Very, very smile
