Dinner at Theo and Colin’s and Mr. Pearl talks to another Diane

The face of Diane and the voice of Mr. Pearl

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The other night I had dinner with friends and one of their friends had never heard of Mr. Pearl. She asked Mr. Pearl what he did and he of course was very humble. Here is a little bit of the conversation where Mr. Pearl explains how he started his journey of making corsets while Theo and Colin prepared our lovely dinner. The voice of course is Mr. Pearl. I suggested we go on line and show her the first chapter of the film on Mr. Pearl, dinner was served but by now I'm sure she has seen the film and of course was very aware of Mr. Pearl's work with Thierry Mugler and especially the insect collection corsets.
