Holiday Inspiration

 I'm just back from a visit to Edinburgh where, among all the other sights of the city and the festivals, I was stunned by the costumes of these dancers.

 The detailing on head-dresses and garments was amazing, with printed patterns overlaid by embroidery, appliqué and beading.

 Obviously elaborate clothing of this kind was never intended for every-day dress but wouldn't one of those dresses be fabulous?
