With high hopes, I and my teen daughter walked into the museum. With bare white walls and bright fluorescent lights the main entrance as well as the rest of the building gave the feeling of being in a Hospital and by no means a design museum. The exhibition itself, despite its brilliant concept, did not deliver at all. The pictures were extremely mismatched in size and themes; the items were scattered across; again bare white walls and bright industrial lights were overwhelming. Many pictures where too small to be noticeable; item borrowed from celebs and others were ordinary and bland with no story behind; a collage of magazine cuts and tacky posters were not enough to make a statement either about power, or women, or fashion. We read many interesting resumes though with no relevance to fashion or anything else. We left within half an hour feeling rather empty; all I can remember is empty white walls. I think the image of Dame Westwood was oversold to promote this exhibition; full marks for publicity. Can we have our money back please?
