I went to see Orla Kiely: A life in pattern which was brilliant but a bittersweet experience. As a big fan of her brand I was upset by her company closing the day before I visited this homage to her work & all things patterned. This museum is small but well packaged with bright airy spaces & friendly staff. This was my first visit but I look forward to future exhibitions & Bermondsey High St is a lovely destination for good food & pottering about


I saw the Cult of T-shirts exhibition here recently and was very impressed by the curation. The gallery space itself is not massive, but they use it well. Giant scaffold cages were built to hang the t-shirts from, giving it a really mass political feel. Really apt. They run short courses in all areas of fashion too. Well worth a visit. 


LFW has kicked off!! FROWS, top models and lots of incredible collections from some of the worlds most admired designers. I have a feeling the Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid show will be one of the most memorable this season!

What's great about this time of year is alongside the shows the Fashion world creates great events, Q&A sessions and exhibitions to celebrate all that we love about style.

'The World Of Anna Sui' is currently showing at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London. It's a beautiful exhibition showcasing the American designers eye for details from clothes, textiles, accessories to collaborations with some of the worlds most creative people.

I checked it out earlier this week and literally fell in love with almost everything! What's lovely about it is the way everything is displayed in such an intimate way. You literally can touch the fabrics, see Anna's sketches while getting lost in all the different genres of fashion this incredible woman has created.

You will need to get your skates on however as it's on for another few weeks only. I highly recommend it especially if you adore fashion and need some inspiration for your wardrobe.


Visited this museum with my partners mother as she designs clothes and so this museum obviously seemed very much her thing. We didn't not enjoy it but for the £9 entrance fee it's a little on the small side. We spent about half an hour here and had covered everything. Interesting and the exhibition was put together well but far too pricey for what you're getting.

The cafe did have lovely chocolate doughnuts though ;)

Saw the Missoni exhibition here - beautifully curated and a great tour brought the collection to life


I thoroughly enjoyed my visits to the Fashion and Textile Museum. I have been to see the 'Liberty In Fashion' exhibition and also the 'Missoni Art Colour'. It was a blast, art, fashion and textile are very much infused together with such exuberance displayed in the museum. The entrance for me caught my eye instantly. The intricate patterns beautifully placed across the floor is incredible. It's located in a very stylish area of London and not very difficult to find. I loved how it was small but very spacious, with it's adorable museum shop. A must go museum for all fashion lovers and everyone else who appreciates the art and hardwork behind these pieces. They have a beautiful open spaced cafe and I managed to get the 2for1 ticket offers which was a bonus. #TOTastemaker Lots of love MD.

I very much enjoyed my visit to this quaint and friendly museum. I saw the 'Picasso to Warhol in textiles' exhibition which was executed beautifully with  trad jazz playing appropriately in the background. If you have an interest in pattern and design and how art and fashion can cross over brilliantly then go see this lovely exhibition. Also as I had travelled by train I showed my ticket at reception and printed out a coupon from the 2for1 for london website and got a buy one get one free ticket for me and my daughter.
