Disappointing to read that EastEndWomen'sMuseum still lacks a physical location. It sounded like an amazing opportunity to have a museum in Barking, still there is great work being done on their website blog exploring women’s stories: eastendwomensmuseum.org/womens-stories

Some absolute delights from the Museum of London Dress & Textile stores today. These are 1930s beadwork samples/dress trims from London couturier Devana. I’m so in love with the “oyster shell pearl bib”, anyone else?

Around 1 in 20 women died in childbirth before medical advancement, not inc. infant mortality. We should never fetishise ‘natural birth’ as it can have a devastating outcome, however preferable it might be for some.

The familiar comfort of Sense and Sensibility is seeing me through wet days and workloads. The c1811 gown would have danced through candlelit spaces at the same time that the book was first published and Elinor and Marianne explored the Devonshire landscape The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The coloring of this faille and velvet ensemble, c. 1878, by Amedee François suggests luxe half-mourning, although the museum does not mention such a provenance.

Again, insulting to designers work and concept. But New York Post has no boundaries. This is going to be a thread... First of all, I find that US audiences specifically (I've seen theatre in lots of places) needs literal set pieces and objects on a stage in order to enjoy it.. (1)
