This wonderful unworn suit was part of a private fashion collection, covering over 150 years, and was stored almost immediately following its purchase, I’m told is was an unwanted gift!
The collection was handed down through the ladies of the family and each added their own styles, to give a fab insight into the history of fashion. The suit has been shown in natural light for clarity and is completely untouched digitally. The suit has been freshly dry cleaned and is ready to wear.
