    It’s interesting how the designers attributed their designs to Shakespeare when if you think about it, they really have more to owe to the culture and dress of the time he lived than to the man himself. Just goes to show how we really can’t quite put a finger on what is definitely “Shakespearean”.

    Anyway, those designs. WOW. The fashion industry really is kooky.
