Della Oake at Clytha Park

“Two extremes of fashion are designed and worn with great authority in Britain: the tailored suit and the ball dress. This last – shown like an elegant ghost of a lady who might have lived at Clytha Park, Miss Herbert’s Monmouthshire home.

Twin-pointed tiara of diamonds set in Palladium; long matching earrings.” – Della Oake at Clytha Park. British Vogue, February 1951. Photograph by Norman Parkinson.
