The toile room at the Dior exhibition at the V&A museum. Made of calico, these are used to adjust measurements and smaller parts of the design (the position of a frill or length of a sleeve) & go on to be the pattern for the final piece.
I love these room as after the opulence of everything before it, it’s like taking a breath before diving into the grand finale.
The exhibition has been extended twice (or is it thrice now?) as it’s so popular! Go see if it you’re in London - it’s fabulous!! #myvam#toile#dior#diorexhibition
This past weekend, we journeyed to @chateausureau, the actualization of Austrian restaurateur and hotelier Erna Kubin-Clanin’s dream to create a Provençal sanctuary in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Every detail delighted, perhaps none more so than our regal canopy bed, plucked straight from my girlhood fantasies. #chateaudusureau#relaischateaux#sponsored
