Hardy Amies Exhibition

From Royalties, Hollywood stars, to British Airways flight attendants, Hardy Amies dressed them all. The famous Seville Row tailoring house opened last month their doors and archives to the public. It is amazing how many valuable models, sketches and photos have so long been forgotten in the basement. Hardy, considered as a unique heritage of the British fashion heritage, was the one who dressed the Queen among the other members of the Royal family. Rumor has it that he was the pretender for Princess Diana’s wedding dress. Unfortunately, as it often happens in life, one of his competitors took the task by asking the Princess weather she would like to look like her mother in love on her wedding dress. Even without being honored by the achievement of dressing the Diana on her wedding day, Hardy Amies is responsible for many other contributions and the space on top of his studio (where his fittings used to be), reminds of a couturier’s salon of the rang of Dior and Chanel.
