RAMM

V.I.P Visit to the RAMM's Store Rooms!!!

Hello all,

I thought I would tell you about my trip to the RAMM’s store rooms!
I went with my friend Lola Phoenix, WE HAD SO MUCH FUN!!!!!
Shelley Tobin was our tour guide and she showed us whole rooms of shoes, hats, dresses, etc., etc.
The women’s clothes were from the 18th century to 1980’s and the men’s clothes were from the 17th century to 1980’s.
There were some really beautiful clothes with embroidery and beads and lace. A lot of work went into making some of these and they were mostly done by hand. I now know how to organize my shoe collection...

Sadly I didn’t have breakfast that morning coz I was to excited (I forgot) so I was hungry until lunch... >.<<br />
We also got to play dress up!!!! ( with the not so delicate stuff) I got to try on a corset, so did Lola. And I tried hip bustles, bum bustles , etc. , etc. It was great fun!

We stayed for HOURS!!!!!!

All of these pictures are from inside the RAMM’s Costume Store Rooms. And all of the clothes belong to the RAMM.

Here is their website if you want to contact them, organize a trip to see them, or just out of interest. (click the squiggly face below)

ASSEMBLY ON HISTORICAL COSTUME

Congratz on me and RAMM and my school too!

My school, with some persuasion, gave me permission to organize an assembly for the younger children at my school. This assembly was on vintage fashion. I spoke with the Shelley Tobin and the great team at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and organized two volunteers, Ann and Rachel, to come and do a presentation on vintage fashion. I am very interested in fashion like this because it is so important in films to create the visual impression of the time and place where the story takes place. Understanding the details of vintage fashion is a part of making a movie believable and pleasing to look at. Besides....i just LOVE beautiful clothes!!!

The event at school went REALLY well and I am now the youngest child to ever organize such an event in the history of my school Winking

Rachel and Ann were awesome... they brought the most beautiful clothes, umbrellas and fashion prints to show the children and I was stunned...
there is one quote that everyone seemed to say it was...


“AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEE”
