Fashion is most decidedly art when it becomes a play on light and dark; on the sensuous possibilities of British Wool – as in this ravishing, form-fitting, fishtail skirt , constructed in Yorkshire wool by British, sustainable fashion house, Makepiece, who are based in Todmorden. The exaggerated silhouette hugs the body to dazzling, head-turning effect. This is a shape that flatters all figures, and it is a masterpiece from field to hanger. I can’t help thinking that the designer, Nicola Sherlock, must have been musing on Cecil Beaton’s deliciously theatrical costumes for Audrey Hepburn for the rather wonderful film version of My Fair Lady, starring Rex Harrison.
