The Collection: one of the most sumptuous-looking TV shows you’ll see all year

The Collection begins its weekly broadcast on BBC First Australia, 9.30pm Tuesday, 14th March 2017. It is included in Who Magazine's recommended list - read it on issuu, while Foxtel has shared two preview articles promoting the show - here and here. No new photos or interviews have appeared online to promote the Australian launch of The Collection, but for some reason episode one has been renamed The Ideal. Surely it must be a typo...

The glamorous world of 1940s haute couture collides with intrigue, conspiracy and war crimes in BBC First’s prestige eight-episode series. As the City of Light looks to put the horror of World War II behind it, fashion impresario Paul Sabine and his brother Claude realise that Parisians want more than their bellies fed – they are also hungry for beauty. The House Of Sabine cuts a swathe through the world of high fashion, leading to one of the most sumptuous-looking TV shows you’ll see all year.

There is also good news for fans in South Africa. It seems The Collection will broadcast on BBC First there sometime in April 2017.
