Who better to support these ideas than the wife of the man with no voice, Colin Firth. 1930-1940 brought us the great depression in Britain, as you all know we are the chief  D.I.Y inventors, 'made do and mend' forced us to be brutal with little fabrics and sparse accessories, but we made it work. Meanwhile Parisienne Couture were extracting world famous ideas and exhausting our society. Are we resigning as fashion fabricators, lying down the gauntlet and letting our predecessors reign once again?
