Today in London... I wore Floral Trousers

Today I headed up to London to check out the Westwood to Channel Exhibition which is at the Fashion and Textile Museum.  It was really very good. I think there is a lot of miss conceptions about about knitwear, people would generally immediately think of big winter jumpers. But with todays tech knowledge and even way back in the 20s you can't even tell it is knit wear. I really loved how Juliann McDonold incorporates into his collection. The exhibition was very interesting  displaying a range of knit wear from the 20s right through till today from designers like Channel, Westwood and Zhandra Rodes but also from high street stores and pieces hand made pieces by housewives. I also enjoyed how they explored the effects of runway fashion to high street stores and even how housewives own makes inspired designers like Channel. I found the knitted swimwear from the 20's most intriguing especially how that would play out in the sea! Then it was to Westfield wear I purchased a running dress which I will show you later in another post.
