Let's start with the Isabella Blow exhibition at Somerset House at the end of March. It was a beautiful collection of her vast (and expensive) clothing and accessories. She was a muse and patron for both Philip Tracey and Alexander McQueen so the range of things to see was impressive. Unfortunately because the exhibition was in its final week it was extremely busy and I wasn't able to get any photos of the lovely garments or hats.
In the stairwell leading to the exhibition there was an amazing installation based on Philip Tracey's hats created by Boo Studio.

Here is a selection of my favourite posters.
In late November I took a trip to the Fashion and Textiles Museum to see the Glamour of Belleville Sassoon exhibition which was lovely. It was great to see such beautifully curated highlights from the 1960's to the present day including a seperate section showcasing the fashion designs and garments worn by Princess Diana and other famous royalty.
Here are a few highlights from the exhibition:
|Hand-painted coat circa 1960|
|1970's beaded bias cut dress|
|Velvet and silk dupion ball gown 1980's|
|Hand-beaded lace dress 1960's|
