The Famous Beauties Ball in London.

I have been looking through the web and came upon this photo from 1931. It is a scene that I have not seen for many years. It was however very influential to my life, as I was so inspired by it. I remember at the time I just wanted to make all these gowns [I was about 16years old] 5 years later I went on to design and make a collection of ballgowns for my degree show, sponsored by Laura Ashley....and now I'm making Wedding Gowns....Funny old life!

1931, London, England, UK - The Famous Beauties Ball in London: Miss Baba Beaton (second from left) surrounded by Jess Chattock, Nancy Mitford, and Carol Prickard in enormous pageant dresses before background painting.
