The Seamworker’s Guide to Fashion Museums

Liberty in Fashion at The Fashion and Textile Museum

I have an article in the August issue of Seamwork, released today.

The article is a guide to some of the best fashion and textile museums around the world. I’ve visited some of these museums in person; others are on my to-see list. I did my best to squeeze in as many museums as I could within the article word count!

You can read the full article here, or download the magazine (for free) from the Seamwork website.

One of the museums included is the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, which is one of my favourites. Below are a few photos of their recent Liberty in Fashion exhibition which I visited back in January. I’m especially looking forward to their upcoming Jazz Age fashion and photography exhibition (23 September 2016 – 15 January 2017).

  1. Congratulations on the on the Seamworks article, just skimmed through it and I’m pretty jealous of all the locations you’ve been to!
    I can’t wait for the jazz age exhibition too, I went to a Great Gatsby themed party and I’ve been obsessed with the 20’s since. I even managed to hunt down an original 20’s dress to wear for under £20 and need to work out how to mend it. It fell apart even more after I wore it :,( If our schedules are the same can I tag along with you? Obviously I won’t mind if you planned to go with other people! I’ll just have to drag my husband with me instead 🙂

    • Thank you:) I haven’t made it to all of the musuems yet – quite a few are still on my to-do list. I would love to meet-up to see the Jazz Age Exhibition (and maybe get some lunch / have a shop!) Maybe in October?

      • That would be great! Just give me a heads up when you know which date you’re coming. Have you been to Woolcrest textile shop? I hear its amazing! but Walthamstow and Goldhawk never disappoint 🙂
        Me too, I’ve got a few exhibitions on my list. I’ve still not gone to the V &A lingerie exhibition which I hear is worth going to.

  2. Great article in Seamwork. Never realised there was so much to see in Florence. Just wondered whether you have you been to the Fashion Museum in Bath?

  3. I really enjoyed that Liberty exhibition as well. The jazz age exhibition sounds brilliant, can’t wait for that! I really enjoy reading Seamwork, though I’ve never subscribed for the patterns.
