Another repeat for us
There is so much to see there, this year Linda did some research and found there was an exhibition celebrating Mary Quant.
Being teenagers of the 60’s this really struck a chord with us and we were not disappointed.
Although I very much liked her revolutionary fashion designs when they happened, I really gained a fresh appreciation through seeing what was on display.
Often she worked with wool and stretch fabrics, which are not necessarily the easiest of textiles to work with.
Bold stripes were a feature in many of her designs making sure that all seams were perfectly matched. Top stitching and zips were also design features, again, perfect in detail.
Quite a few people commented on how comfortable her clothes were to wear and that they became favourites in their wardrobe.
I wasn’t sure about these, but they do look good.
All in all a well worth going to exhibition.
We have been so pleased with all the good things we have been able to see on this trip.
