~ DID YOU KNOW ? ~

    Did you know that they had Full Scale Fashion Shows back in the late 1800's ?

Wouldn't it be wonderful to attend that show? With the knowledge we have now and simply go back in time? We would be completely in awe I think!

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I would not even "come up for air".
I would of course, have to have my digital camera and check book at the ready too.
I look at the prices of things back then..the beautiful clothes and the magnificent baby carriages..etc. and MARVEL.
If only MORE people would have had forethought enough to TRULY preserve these things.

Thanks for sharing this Rose. Very interesting. I bet that the costumes were very elegant indeed. JB

Oh, I never even thought about that! I would love to time-travel and attend one! It makes sense, as fashion was new and very important to the sophisticated women back then.

I had not thought about it either, but you can bet it was done in NY for the ULTRA wealthy.
