La Belle Epoque at Vancovuer Museum


Every week, I do my best to keep you up-to-date on the latest fashions. So I go to fashion shows.

But this weekend, the women on the catwalk strutted looks that were definitely dated.

The Vancouver Museum mounted a runway show with clothes from a hundred years ago as part of its La Belle Epoque fashion exhibition on now.

Clothing historian Ivan Sayers was the master of ceremonies and the show was packed. Some of the audience even wore period pieces.

JJ had a lot of questions about it all, including: "Would you ever wear a whale-bone corset?"

Or listen to it through Google Video.
