Founded in 1877, RD Franks, the best Fashion bookshop & one the best independent magazine stockists in London has closed it's doors. They're keeping an on-line presence. Before everything was online, and because Uni Libraries generally suck for Fashion sources, I used to spend hours scouring RD Franks. I guess with the emergence of Style.com et al that offer all the shows for free and Amazon stocking all the old pattern-making publications (although RD Franks had a lot of great, rare traditional tailoring technical makers guides), it became obsolete. RIP.
