Finally I managed to make an overdue visit to the Design Museum to see the ‘Women Fashion Power’ exhibition; a morning playing hookie well spent if you ask me.
Showcasing the relationship between influential women and their clothes, you are able to browse the history of clothing over the last 150 years (well technically the story starts with Eve and her forbidden apple!). Fashion is a powerful form of self expression – where one individual is looking to garner attention, another might be dressed to assert authority – and the first impression someone has of you. Take a closer look at how royalty, politicians, models, designers, CEO’s and music artists have used fashion to define, empower and enhance their position in the world.
Make sure you pay a visit before 26th April 2015.
