Welcome to my blog, which highlights my collection of Joan Collins memorabilia, now in it's 26th year.
Above, is probably the first photo I puchased of Joan, back in 1983 - but how did this collection start in the first place?

It was Sunday 22nd May 1983 and the Sunday People, a UK newspaper were running an article written by her then estranged husband, the late Ron Kass ... a tribute to the most ravishing 50 year old in the world.

I have to admit that I never watched Dynasty until Joan joined the show in the second season. Her dramatic court room entrance during the trial of Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) when she lifted the veil and removed her dark glasses .... I, like the rest of the world said "Wow!!"

From that moment I decided to start what I thought would be a "small" collection and the days and months that followed Joan was in the newspapers all the time.
