My writing prompt for today is to write about this beautiful dress by Madame Vionnet, sadly currently in the Victoria and Albert Museum and not in my wardrobe. The inspiration for this comes from the website's section on creative writing in galleries and museums - and in particular Michael Donaghy's poem here. The poem was written as part of a project which commissioned poets to pick a particular object from the museum and write a poem about it. I would have picked this dress I'm sure. When I was at Fashion College I picked Madame Vionnet as the subject for my final project, something that spoils you for Top Shop for ever more!
