it was amazing

It's a privilege to see these clothes, particularly since many were presumedly destroyed, altered or reused after the fall of the Tsarist state. The skill involved in the making of these clothes is simply awe-inspiring, and from a historical point of view, it's particularly poignant to see pieces actually worn by Nicolas II and Tsarina Alexandra.
