i was invited to preview the fashion and textile museum's new exhibition, knitwear: chanel to westwood wednesday evening. it was such a pleasure and such a source of inspiration.
the sister by sibling dress (top image)....!!! was the start of the journey for me. then off it was to devour these beautiful fashion photographs as created by norman parkinson. these prints i kept on going back to, to stare at. my next wonder was actually all those knit cardigans, such quality. i am the queen of cardigans, did you know? i prefer wearing several cardies instead of a jacket:) of course i loved the chanel section! i too fell in love with the fancy needlework illustrated! before i left, i visited the store of the museum which carries dangerously inspiring books! especially one on laura ashely perfection (half price at the moment on top of it all)!
if you live in london or if you are to visit, i would highly recommend visiting this wonderful museum to view this exhibition which opened today! it runs until january 18th 2015.
