Welcome the Spring

We have been promising the launch of our new website for months now, and it's still not quite ready. The clever tech-guys are still working away behind the scenes to make sure it all functions properly. It shouldn't be long now, so please bear with us!
Meanwhile, nature doesn't have to worry about delays with web developers, and it's hard to believe that today is the first day of spring already! I found this charming pamphlet in our collections, which seemed to encapsulate the optimism of the season. Trees coming into leaf, new life bursting forth, and an excuse for a wardrobe revamp. What more could a woman want?
I would like a "Pringle cashmere snugcoat
in shades of medici blue and champagne " please.

Finding this cheered me up about our delayed website; itwas a reminder that MoDA's collections contain some really great stuff, and the new website will enable us to share it with you much more easily. (Keep watching this space!)
What do you think? Has the arrival of spring cheered you up too?
