Handbags ARE the very meaning of life to most women (and a few men i know too dear readers)! So Miss Mannequin's ears pricked up instantly when she overheard proportion london's favourite avant garde exhibition curator Judith Clark discussing mannequins for her latest venture, the SIMONE HANDBAG MUSEUM due to launch in Seoul, South Korea this month.
Displaying a 300 strong collection of historically significant vintage and modern bags which date as far back as the 16th Century - Judith's team have collected, collated and detailed each - just the kind of job Miss Mannequin would relish.
Working with the project's brainchild, CEO of luxury handbag production company: Simone, the museum will provide a most relevant historic archive and creative inspiration for visitors from around the world.
Sadly dear reader, more than this i cannot divulge since the project is very hush hush - i can however give you a sneak preview of the beautiful bodies that the bags will be displayed against. If the expectation lives up to the exquisite design and workmanship of these bust forms, it promises to be an iconic moment in bag history and documentation. I promise to follow up with a report the moment the doors swing open! Stay tuned.....
