As you can see from the title this is going to be slightly edgy next week Im popping into Bangkok and Ive been recommended a tailor who can make me a copy of this Balmain dress that Audrey Tautou wore to Cannes: Ive enquired about real Couture version but have to say its VERY, VERY dear for a silk muslin dress. But lets say if you happen to get your dirty mits on a copy of the original sketches, the details including the inner bodice and the little fabric squares enabling you to make a perfect copy down to the needlework, would you do it or let the chance go? You are going to ask: why do you want opinions since you must be determined as you've already gone to great lengths to get even the fabric samples. My friend also says get on with it (naturally because shes the instigator and getting made an exact copy of her Chanel Couture suit right down to the three-seamed sleeves ). But when I told this to my parents, they got me slightly off the rails and pointed out the problem if someone asks you where you got it especially since they may have seen it (i.e. the knockoff issue). Being parents their words carry slightly more weight so should I go back on the rails or derail myself?
