sixty years ago yesterday to a visit made by Princess Alexandra to the London Association for the Blind in Peckham. Her voluminous butter yellow velvet braided pillbox (with nearly the proportions of a turban!) is a fantastic style statement very much of the time, even though it seems a bit mumsy to current eyes for the young, single, stylish princess that she was. How fashion has changed!
