Bastille Day at Britex

July 12, 2010 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Fabulously tasteful Sarah of TotallySevere.com’s Marie-Antoinette paper dolls were the inspiration for Britex Fabric’s Bastille Day window display. This display was created by the ever-glamorous James. Although Marie-Antoinette never actually said "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", we have no doubt that she would have loved the cupcake confection that she is holding aloft. Incidentally, the culprit for that quotation is thought to be Marie-Thérèse, the wife of Louis XIV.
