I'm thinking about putting together my own tailor made (pardon the pun) holiday focusing on fashion and culture. In terms of countries I have visited already I've been a number of countries in Europe already but only know the Netherlands and Italy well.

I'd like to get an interrail pass and visit some of the great museums and places of fashion. Whilst enjoying some good food on the way.......

So, I am sure some of you have already been to some great places. Where in Europe would you suggest going to? Your help is much appreciated! I have up to 15 days to allocate in terms of time.

Paris, of course. Just for the street fashion. It's really true what they say about Parisian Women and style. And the shop windows will make you swoon.

thanks tlmck3, Paris was on my mind as a place to go to. Even as a (poor!) student I remember well a holiday there where I stumbled across a street which still stays in my memory.

The cars looked incredibly expensive, each shop had a chap in a suit to open the door for customers, and when I peeked through the window of a closed shop the dresses in the window costs thousands of pounds.

I was thinking (after researching a bit more) about the following:

Start at Berlin (they have two museums with costumes there), move on to Paris. Then go to Barcelona, then Florence and Milan. What do you think?

You should start following the blog Worn Through, then: http://www.wornthrough.com/

It's a scholarly look at fashion history (from university lecturers, museum curators, etc), and they frequently highlight fashion/costume exhibits around the world.

The other night, DH was watching a show on BBC when the London Eye came onscreen. I heard him say, "Want. To. Go. On. Ferris. Wheel." I instantly stuck my head in the room and said, "Hon, name the moment. I will HAPPILY accompany you to London for you to ride that thing, whenever you say. I will be at the V&A!"

stirwatersblue, I shall go look at that blog link, thank you. Will I make you really jealous by saying I have just (this evening in fact) booked a trip to London with a fellow sewing friend specifically to visit the lovely selection of fashion pictures and templates they have?

I cant wait, a whole afternoon of looking at pretty pictures! But in the mean time the following information on their website might whet you appetite (their website is lovely):
