The (almost) finished piece, but as usual only able to get a snap of it on me as we had to exchange in secret as the dress was a surprise for her husband, who was worried that his wife didn't have anything lovely to wear for their annual company ball.

I just found these images on my computer of the Fashion/Dance show I styled when I was doing work experience with Studio Boardman (creative events company) a couple of years ago. The theme was based on three tube lines, the central line (red), the Northern line (Black), and the Jublilee line (silver/grey - not shown). The central line outfits were pretty and flouncy to reflect all of the high street retail that is found along the central line. The Jubilee line was statuesque and grand, and the Northern line was a bit more grungy and flamboyant to reflect the likes of camden that can be found along the line.
Mostly, the pieces were pulled from the costume cupboard but I hand made a couple of the pieces, including the red hat and the satin and net bustle skirt.
