Doesn’t this same advert sound so much more seductive in French?
Madame Annette, better known to friends and family as Annie Andrews, set up at 88 Kings Road in 1901 and carried on her couture business throughout WW1. Annie was a feisty lady. In 1916, she even pursued one customer for debt, and a major’s wife at that, as far as the High Court. Her business survived the early 1920s fashion for throwing away your corsets. Maison Annette finally closed in 1925.
