Obsession Of The Week.

Thea Porter.

I know I'm late in catching on to her designs.

She had a fanastical life. Born in Jerusalem on Christmas Eve, 1927 - she moved to London to study French and Old English at London University and Art at Royal Holloway College. Having completed her education for the time being she popped over to live in Beirut for a bit, taking with her, her child Venetia. Thea then returned to London - opened her own boutique in Soho and took the fashion world by storm - with an international clientele that included Liz Taylor, Charlotte Rampling and Brian Jones...

I wish I was called Venetia Porter. With this as my name I would have been a truly formidable character.

Every now and then something pops up on ebay
