Fashion and Textile Museum

romania_flag_24 Daca data trecuta am vizitat in Londra cam ce a vrut pinguinul singuratic (Westminster Abbey de exemplu, care este impresionanta prin importanta sa, faptul ca toti regii au fost incoronati aici si mare parte din ei inmormantati tot aici), de data asta mi-am facut de cap si m-am dus in locurile unde am simtit eu ca am de invatat despre moda sau cel putin vad lucruri care sa ma inspire. Zis si facut! Sunt mandra ca am vazut in doua weekend-uri in Londra mai mult decat altii intr-un sejur intreg. Asta poate si pentru ca deja cunosteam orasul, care ofera atatea posibilitati incat devine greu sa alegi. Dar mi-am pastrat cumpatul si mi-am facut o lista cu destinatiile tinta. Apoi am prioritizat, si uite asa am ajuns sa am cel mai fashion weekend in Londra din cate exista. Voi dedica cate un articol fiecarui loc special pe care l-am vazut weekend-ul trecut si le voi prezenta in ordinea in care le-am explorat. Astazi dezvalui primul dintre ele, muzeul dedicat modei si materialelor din Londra. Studiind lista cu cele peste 100 de muzee din acest fabulos oras, mi-a sarit in ochi numele lui. Si mi-am zis ca trebuie sa merg, sa vad despre ce este vorba. Ma asteptam la un muzeu grandios despre istoria modei, despre designerii care au schimbat cursul modei de-a lungul timpului, la sali dedicate diferitelor perioade. Am ajuns acolo si am constatat insa ca muzeul este foarte mic si prezinta creatii ale designerului Casei Regale, Bellville Sasson. Am vazut rochii create pentru Diana, pentru Elizabeth II, schite, monstre de materiale si multe rochii purtate la diverse evenimente importante din viata femeilor din Familia Regala. Am analizat indeaproape modelele, materialele folosite si mi-a placut ce am vazut. Si pentru ca ‘sharing is caring’ am facut fotografii pentru a va arata si voua minunatele creatii.

This time I visited the places where I felt I have something to learn or at least would be inspiring to me. Said and done! I’m proud that in two weekends in London I saw so much of it. This is maybe because I already knew the city that offers so many possibilities as sometimes is hard to choose. But I kept my balance and made a list with target destinations. Then I prioritized and so I got to have the most fashionable weekend in London. I will dedicate a post to every special place I visited and I will present everything chronologically. Today I reveal the first, the museum dedicated to fashion and textile. Studying the list of more than 100 museums available in this fabulous city, his name caught my eye and I said to myself I have to see what is all about. I was expecting an imposing museum about fashion history, about designers who changed the world and rooms dedicated to certain fashion periods. I got there and I found that the museum is pretty small and contains collections of Bellville Sasson, a Royal Family designer. I saw dresses created for Diana, Elisabeth II, sketches, textiles samples and so many dressed wore at important events by the Royal Family women. I analyzed all the dresses closely, the fabrics used and I really loved what I saw. And because sharing is caring I took some photos to show you the wonderful creations. Enjoy!

  1. Mmmm o catifea verde ar merge sa cumparam. Interesant, ma bucur ca macar asa am vazut si eu cu putin mai mult decat am reusit sa vad fizic acolo! Interesante modele si croiuri, Diana si-a scos foarte multe rochii la licitatie, s-a imbogatit de pe urma lor dupa divort 🙂 ihihi scrie si in carte! 🙂
