I loved the way you guided us through the periods with words and details of things that happened at that time. Horst and I left the show being wiser than before”

“I recently had the pleasure of attending a fashion show featuring clothing of the Victorian era presented by Victorian Vogue.  The clothes, all sewn and modeled by members of the group, were stunning in the gorgeous fabrics used, impeccably finished with intricate design detail. This was truly a feast for the eyes, with lovely commentary, highlighting the historical, social and cultural significance of each piece. Of special interest also were the many historical anecdotes referring to life in Victoria and British Columbia at the time. This is a most enjoyable, unique, must see show.”

 “What I loved most about this impeccable show of fashions is that it wasn’t chronological. Not a history lesson!  (“Bustle’s in, bustle’s out”.) Every model that stepped out came with a story, a vignette complete, dressed to perfection in a moment of history. The research behind the show was meticulous;

  • Suffragettes in utilitarian khaki.
  • The extended stages of Victorian widowhood – seen in dress.
  • The opening of the Royal Theatre on December 19, 1913:
  • Imagine a gown of taupe silk chiffon with multi-layers of ruffles, and a bronze taffeta wrap trimmed with ostrich plumes.
  • Surprise after surprise. “
