I went to Bath last month and I managed to catch this amazing costume exhibition at the Bath Fashion Museum. The detail on some of the period costumes was just amazing. Oh, and there were costumes that all my favourite English actors had worn: Johnny Depp, Colin Firth, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Orlando Bloom, Judi Dench, Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson... you name it! There's going to be a lot of photos here! So many in fact, that I've decided to do two posts. There's just too many photos to include!

fashion night out // london

12 Sep 2011

I went to London's Fashion Night Out last night and stood 5th in line (thanks to Letizia who actually waited, while I arrived late after a meeting) outside Alexander McQueen to get my AMcQ key to potentially win a tote bag (I didn't). Then we strolled to Chanel to wait for a manicure and it was taking way too long and we had a talk by amazing fashion illustrator David Downton to get to! I'm so glad Letizia took me, because he was an incredible, engaging speaker and his work is simply stunning.











My Alexander McQueen key... that didn't win me anything.


 Louis Vuitton. We didn't go in, but I liked the window display.
