Coming this Week at "Stalking the Belle Époque"

Sunday, May 22, 2011


Glitz, glitter and glamour are on the menu for the upcoming week at Stalking the Belle Époque. From the vaults of The Royal Collection and the Victoria & Albert Museum, we’ll be dusting off some of the most exceptional diamonds and jewels in the world. We’ll take a look at the exquisite gems collected by Queen Mary and passed on to her granddaughter, Queen Elizabeth II as well as the sparkling creations which adorned Britain’s most celebrated families.

Since we’re playing dress-up, why not have someplace to go? How about London’s beautiful Royal Albert Hall? This unusual building is not only a fitting tribute to Prince Albert, but also a temple of England’s performing arts.

Unusual costumes and dramatic scenes will unfold as we examine the paintings, sculptures and fans which defined the fashions of their times. Similarly, we’ll look at some of the films which have established trends in fashion across the world.

Speaking of world-wide trends, we’ll continue our introductions to Mr. Punch’s cousins across the globe. And, in our online novel, Punch’s Cousin, we’ll have some huge surprises which will alter the course of the adventures of our friends forever.

There’s quite a bit in store for you and Bertie and I are looking forward to sharing it all with you! Here’s wishing everyone a remarkable week.
