Not only can you go and see it in person if you’re in Sydney, but I’m coming to Australia to be part of a lecture in conjunction with the exhibition

    Delighted for you! Much looking forward to hearing how it goes.

  3. I am interested in hearing how it goes also. I have always loved this dress, though I know you find it doesn’t really meet your standards.

    Really looking forward to this! I discovered your blog only a few months ago, and am so enjoying it (and learning a lot too). How exciting you are coming to Sydney!
