Yesterday I spent a day in London visiting a few museums. One of the exhibitions I saw was the V&A club to catwalk.

I really enjoyed it, and that includes the price - 5! I got mine half price as I have an art fund card. Even better, surrounding the exhibition is a new updated display of fashion through the ages, from the 1700's through to the 1960's.

I dont know if this means I have finally started to build up some fashion knowledge, but I was rather chuffed to see some pieces on display which I had seen photos of in books. It was really nice to see them in person.

The combination of the two parts (paid and free) show a wide variety of outfits and really made me realise how some of the recent outfits worn by some celebrities are really not new or shocking at all compared to some of the punk outfits!

R,

I so enjoyed your post (and where it led me!)

IMHO, the web has tended to amalgamate culture, especially fashion. I like hearing and seeing a piece of it all from someone actually there. Even from different parts of North America, there is clear nuance.

That exhibition made me say outloud, 'Wow, that's MTV!' Awesome! I agree with you that revolution is found as 'spice' in later generations!

I truly like your blog style. After a brief startle, I found myself easily navigating to those parts catching my eye. Hey, that yellow fabric looks like it belongs in Paul Smith's wardrobe! Cosmic...

The Art Fund card is a fabulous idea! That's been tried in a few of our metros over the years, but didn't 'take' to any significance. It looks like you're enjoying that concept fully!

Thanks,
Gene
