From what I have read , 1914 dresses were created by Lomova. Is it true?

I've heard that too. In Court of the last Tsar it quotes (about Olga and Tatiana's clothes) - " Their Russian court gown now extended to the floor, and their day dresses, tea dresses, and evening gowns,frequently ordered from the Moscow couture house of Lamanova...".
So I am guessing that it was probably Lamanova ( who appears to be popular with them) where they got their white, 1914 dresses from. Although it could have been any of the couturiers on the Nevesky Prospect or even the fashion houses of Europe?

It might be Lamanova then, thanks Tom, for quote. I a not really into early 20th century, so I don't know. Probably there are similarities in fashion i Nevsky prospect and rest of Europe.

I'd think so, but I'm guessing that Nevsky prospect was cheaper than the European fashion houses though!

Not that expense was a concern for them. But I looked on the Hermitage website and under the picture they show of Tatiana's 1913 court dress ( in Russian style) it says was it was made by Olga Bulbenkova ( if I'm spelling that right)'s workshop. So maybe the white dresses came from there too, more than likely they were Russian made.

I was just reading in Helen Rappaport's new book on p. 20 that when suit cases of the Romanov's stuff arrived at Ekatrinburg, Alexei's baby clothes were among them. I don't why the IF would have packed those. I suppose it was sentimental reasons, reminders of a past life.

That is very scary imperial angel, around the time you posted your  post, I was reading that very passage in that book! And I suppose you are right Alexi's baby clothes were probably just reminders to their past. It must have been important for them though, given they had little time to pack- Makes you wonder what else they packed.

A few years ago, I went to to the Nicholas and Alexandra exhibit.  they had the nursing outfits of the Empress and the Grandduchess. A few of the girls clothes and what I thought was so sad, Alexie's teddy bear.  Seeing the bear brought tears to my eyes.   I think it was a stief,   I have the catolog will have to find it and look thru it again.

Sorry if this has been posted before!

Just wondering--does anyone have any pictures of the outfits of any of the Romanovs? I saw some beautiful photos of Emperess Maria of Dagmar's clothes, and I've seen some current day photos of OTMA's court dresses, etc. etc., but any new photos would be great.

Thanks!
You are filled with anguish
For the suffering of others
And no one's grief
Has ever passed you by
You are relentless
Only towards yourself
Forever cold and pitiless
But only if you could look upon
Your Own sadness From a distance
Oh, how you would pity yourself
How sadly you would we

I know this is very late but I believe someone was looking for this photograph



Also, in reference to the IF's use of marijuana Dr. Sir Russel Reynolds (Queen Victoria's personal physician) frequently prescribed cannabis to his patients. Although there is no evidence to suggest he prescribed it to the queen herself he did use it with many other patients. Additionally,  the Queen had previously used Opium, Coca (raw cocaine), wine and chloroform all for medical purposes.
