The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

Categories: Uncategorized - Tags: , , , , , , ,

With the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations coming up soon, I thought I would put this image on my blog, which is a photo taken in the fashion house ‘Dorville’, where my mother worked as a couturier dressmaker in the 1950’s and 60’s. In this picture she had just started her training as a 16 year old and can be seen working on the hand finishing on the Queen’s coronation robes. My mother is the young woman to the far left of the picture.
