absolutely FABULOUS

One to watch out for this Autumn is the charity fundraiser at Kerry Taylor Auctions of some iconic fashion pieces

Absolutely Fabulous Kerry Tarylor Auctions London SE1

a little black number worn by Patsy (AKA Joanna Lumley) in Absolutely Fabulous goes on sale this autumn at the Kerry Taylor Auctions. This faux leather skirt as seen in ‘Panickin!’ Series 5 is being sold, amongst other items from Joanna, in aid of The Prince’s Trust on the 13 November and is expected to raise between £100 and £150.

This seems more than a fair price to pay to get your hands on such a fun iconic piece.
