Elsa Schiaparelli exhibition

Post from Maggie S on Thurs 22nd October …

Today four of us enjoyed another Culture Cub outing, this time to see the Elsa Schiaparelli exhibition at Manchester Gallery of Costume in Platt Fields Park.  The exhibition is quite small but the costumes were really very beautiful.

The Gallery is well worth a visit and sparked many memories of our younger, slimmer selves.  We had one admission to Hot Pants, and I saw the very Ossie Clark design that I used to own.

Once again the Autumn sunshine  was kind to us and we finished our visit with a late lunch at Carluccio’s (With wine of course).
