What to make of this – the venerable East India Company is about to make a comeback as a dress designer!!
This from London’s Evening Standard…
‘The East India Company was founded in 1600 and dissolved after the Indian Mutiny in 1857-8 for being too powerful. Next season, however, a new design team will see the company resurrected. Expect elegant evening gowns with decadent couture details.’
Where has the Company been all this time?
They used to have their own in-house army, will they now have their own in-house fashionistas?
Where’s the opium in all this??
I’m all at sixes and sevens and frankly a bit giddy!!
