ANNABELINDA - A Retrospective 1971 - 2008

At the Abingdon County Hall Museum from 6th Sep to 9th Nov is an exhibition of the haute couture of Annabelinda.

Belinda O’Hanlon and Anita Woodhead opened Annabelinda in Oxford in 1971, designing and making clothes, and have carried on and built up a huge archive of designs.

The Annabelinda website says: "35 years on it is their reputation for the lavish time, care and attention paid to the line and finish of each garment that still makes an Annabelinda creation so highly and irresistibly desirable."

I found this site after deciding to wear my 1979 Annabelinda dress to my daughter's wedding and thought I would see what I could find out about the designer in 2008. To my surprise there is my dress (left hand end) in your picture! Will I get away with it aged 59? What the hell -it's so beautiful!
