"... But ‘fashion’ is no phantasy of idle minds, no random despot, but a tendency worth study, and eminently instructive, rightly understood, being, with all its blunders, as direct an outcome of the love of beauty as schools of sculpture and painting. It is the last expression of the underlying impulse, the dancing, changing waves which vibrate alternately between the desire to reveal and the necessity to conceal ..." [AN EXCERPT FROM The Art of Dress by Mrs. H. R. Haweis, London, Chatto & Windus, Piccadilly, 1879]
Two simple, modern slips or skirts that can be cut and sewn from a yard of fabric. They represent being at home (a wallpaper fragment and a still life) and adventure out in the world (maps and fabric samples that resemble flags).
