Bureau of Lost Culture – Ms. Freedom (19/12/2021)
Diana Crawshaw’a journey took her from a small north Yorkshire town to the centre of swinging London and the glamour of St `Tropez, from selling, designing and making clothes in Lord Kitchener’s Valet, Mr Freedom and Paradise Garage, the grooviest boutiques of Carnaby Street and Kings Road, to reading palms at the Holland Park office of Richard Branson.
One of our most modest and delightful guests, Diana tells tales of the shops that dressed the Great the Good and the Glitterati, including Hockney Picasso Rock Hudson The Beatles, Freddie Mercury and many more, how she made Dennis Hopper cry and how she fixed Raquel Welch’s hot pants.
Diana can be found reading palms at Wilde Ones in the Kings Road
