Anecdote - "One day a girl I knew came into my studio to buy a tube dress. The tube dress was made of extra tight Lycra.
Armed with a red tube dress she went behind a screen to try it on. My assistant and I, then heard something that sounded like a muffled help we looked at one another and carried on talking. We then heard a more urgent help,we ran behind the screen and it was then we discovered she had pulled the dress on over her head and had got stuck she was rigged,screaming ... I am claustrophobic ...I am claustrophobic!!!.
I was laughing so much tears were falling down my face. We pulled and tugged only making it worse as the poor girl was screaming get me out get me out. I was about to get the scissors when my assistant managed to get her head out. The poor thing was crying and screaming I am having a panic attack! ...
I am ashamed to say I had to go into the toilet and I howl with laughter. My lovely assistant calmed her down with a cup of tea and lots of sympathy. When I asked her if she wanted to buy the dress, I will leave you to imagine what the reply was. My assistant and i agreed we needed to put on the label, 'Step into this Dress.' The dress went on to be a complete winner selling all over the world"...... Janice XX.
