Last week I went to the Antique Corset Exhibition held at the beautiful Hycroft Manor. I have attended all past events, I blogged about last year's event here. It is not often that I get to see people dressed up to their teeth in Vancouver, so I take every opportunity given to me to go to events that require dressing up! :) Hopefully next year the event will be held in a museum, where Melanie Talkington's corsets will finally get a permanent home. Melanie has the largest antique corset collection in the world and has been running fundraisers to establish an antique corset museum! I can't wait to see the outcome! Here is a bio on Melanie.
I follow the Lingerie Addict religiously. It turns out LA were at the event as well! They posted this video on their page today. I was in the audience. :)
Some beautiful things at the event....

|We were told off for entering this room. It's for members only, don't you know!|
|The manor is full of beautiful details. This must have been a fountain , which does not seem to be working anymore|
