Primary research planning

I plan to visit Manchester Art Gallery as they have an exhibtion on called Schiapelli and Thirties Fashion, I though this exhibtion might give me some inspiration to look at different clothing and what was in fashion in different periods and how some of that in trend clothing is actually starting to become in trend now and I could experiment with designing dresses and add to the design what was in fashion in the thirties or other periods.

Elsa Schiapella is the artist that has designed these dresses, she was born in 1890-1973. She is well known for being an artists and fashion designer, she is Italian and the clients she had where people like Marlene Dietrich, Wallis Simpson (Duchess of Windsor). She is one of the most celebrated fashion designers of the twentieth century.
