There is still a bit of time as the exhibition doesn't end until 26 January 2020.

I went to the exhibition today and the following were the stand outs for me:

Part 1



20's style dress



My focus was on the pale green dress in the background



Some like it red

Continued in part 2

The museum doesn't open until 11am, so don't get there too early.

Some lovely stuff. The pink one and the red pleated one re beautiful.  So lucky to be able to get to see these things easily.  Costs us an arm and a leg from here.

Might be worth checking as this exhibition seems to be going on tour next year.

If you get the chance, it's well worth a visit, although you might not be able to see the clothes close up or take pictures.  The fashion and textile museum, which Zandra Rhodes founded, has small spaces and photography is always permitted.
