I'm giving a talk on Thea Porter, "The Intimate World of Thea Porter Couture," this afternoon, as part of the Costume Society's Study Day, De-constructing Couture, so it seemed like a good idea to share a few photos from my presentation. These are less than 10% of what I will be showing today, which is probably less than 2% of the many images I have collected of her and her work- quite an archive!

Hopefully it will go well today- though she has been the focus of my research for two years now, this will be my first public talk on her.
