  • Not as many gowns as I had expected. Quite dark inside although I expect this was to protect the fabric. A coffee shop would have been nice.
  • This is a must if you like fashion design. The visit is a bit expensive but nice anyway. The city is amazing and the food is irresistible. You will not regret.
