Alexandra and Nelson chat with Dale and Ilka, two self confessed Titaniacs who met on Instagram after she was inspired to recreate The Jump Dress, one of Kate Winslet's iconic dresses in TITANIC.
Dale had created a miniature, Barbie-sized version of the dress - and many other of Rose's costumes in the film - so he coached her to not only sew on every bead and sequin but over the course of a year to make the whole dress.
Hear this story and many more on how Titanic connects Dale, Ilka and Alexandra and her best friend from college.
Dale and Ilka also feature in Alexandra's new documentary Ship of Dreams: Titanic Movie Diaries showing their beautiful work and sharing their passion for James Cameron's Titanic and the history of Edwardian costumes and the ship herself.
