It has been a dream of mine to visit a fashion exhibition in London so on a recent visit to the big city. I paid a visit to the Fashion and Textile Museum and explore their 1920’s Jazz Age Exhibition.
The Fashion and Textile Museum host a variety of exhibitions throughout out the year and the one they currently have available is the 1920’s Jazz Age. The exhibition was laid out over two floors and was full of the most beautiful clothing you could imagine.
While I was there, I learnt a lot about the era. the 1920’s was not not a decade I thought I would find interesting, however, once I walked through the exhibition, I realised how fascinating that decade was not just in terms of fashion but for women and how they were presented in society.
The Fashion and Textile Museum showcased a variety of outfits from evening wear (think Bugsy Malone) to more summery day outfits with each section coming with their own story about the women who would wear those clothes. As someone who loves history I found this extremely interesting and took my time walking around so I could take it all in.
While at the Fashion and Textile Museum, there was also a room which was full of photography and publications from the era which was beyond doubt one of the coolest things I have come across. You all should know my love for photography and magazines. The room had some iconic images, along with one of the covers of Tatler Magazine from the era. I mean I did not know Tatler Magazine was established back then!
The Fashion and Textile Museum is based in Borough in London and is a vibrant Yellow and Pink Building, you definitely will not miss it if you are looking for it. I did not know the area and while it took me a couple of minutes to get on the right road, it was not difficult to find at all. The exhibition is still available to view until the 15th December and if you are interested in fashion through the ages, it is worth visiting.
