Join everyone's Fairy Bra Mother, Bev Johnson, on this exploration of Lingerie, Lace & Latex. Our days in London will be jam packed! We'll spend a day exploring the charming city of Bath and it's Fashion Museum & Roman Baths, OR the fashion districts of London plus the
Fashion & Textile Museum. Then we'll take an excursion to Cambridge for a class with Bev and some new friends. In Amsterdam we'll sharpen our latex skills making bras or corsets* with Amber and enjoy historic art by some of the World's masters artists, and of course more shopping! We'll visit Brussels & Bruges where we'll delve into the world of Belgian Lace making. Oh, and you'll have a little free time to catch your breath.
