11 years ago I went to a wedding in London. Our touring took us to the Chelsea Physic Garden. On the way from the tube (Sloan ) we passed a vintage clothing shop with the most amazing collection of couture in the basement. Since I had done a couture course, I was in 7th heaven, looking at the construction of these lovely items. I can't for the life of me remember what the name of it was. Anyone out there know?
