I decided to start in London with Women Power and Style at the Design Museum. It was a lovely bright day out but bitterly cold in the wind. This kind of weather is perfect for walking in London as long as you stay off the main wind channels! So I walked from Liverpool Street to the Design Museum. I crossed the Thames over Tower Bridge and it all looked beautiful.
There are clothes on display from women in power that are not necessarily ‘famous’ but are high achievers and powerful in their fields. For instance Megha Mittal, Anna Jones and Julia Peyton Jones all have outfits on display. It is interesting reading about their achievements and how their outfit or fashion plays a part in their world.
I had lunch at the Design Museum before walking along the SouthBank to Somerset House.
I love Guy Bourdins fun, tongue in cheek, slightly surreal and beautiful images. Well worth a visit if you like a bit of fashion photography.
If you too are thinking of making a day trip to London on the national railway and you’d like to see some exhibits; go online here and print off the 2 for 1 deal on tickets.
