Sastreria Cornejo Madrid

This week I visited Sastreria Cornejo in Madrid as well as the itinerant Yves St Laurent exposition where I could not take pictures. To say the least to see YSL's designs, colour boards and chronological idea boards for his collections from the late 50's to 2002 was absolutely awe strucking, however seeing the actual gowns, over 100 of them was just too amazing to describe.
When we arrived at Cornejo we were welcomed by the owner, 3rd generation wardrobe suppliers for the cinema, theatre and opera...... to think they dressed people in films  like James Bond, Gladiator, Asterix and Obelix, Agora, Camelot, The Tudors,Thor, Midnight in Paris, Dawton Abbey, Games of Thrones,Pirates of the Carribean and  many of Pedro Almodovar's films to the point the owner Humberto Cornejo just referredto him as 'Pedro'.  Another thing to ponder career wise, fashion history related to figure design for the cinema and theatre.
