On Sunday, I went round to see the Victoria and Albert touring exhibition on The Golden Age of Haute Couture (last day!) … it was fantastic.

If you get a chance to see this exhibit as it tours (it may already have been… Quebec City is often on the tail end of the touring circuit!), it is awesome for fashion fanatics like ourselves! (As for BurdaStyle, I noticed that guys were spread a little thinly at the exhibit (sigh), although, to be fair, it was focused exclusively on women’s fashions.)
