Weds 24th Sept: KNITWEAR Chanel to Westwood at The Fashion & Textile Museum

The latest exhibition to open at The Fashion & Textile Museum is "KNITWEAR Chanel to Westwood" which has many, many cosmic designers from a cross spectrum in-between.  Here are some of my favourites spanning time from a Sonia Delauney bathing suit thru to Rudi Gernrich & Courrèges sixties space style knits thru to contemporary looks by London's Sibling and Yang Du.  There's even a nod to sport science with NIKE fly-knits which was of particular interest to me! 
Like every themed story curated at this space, it is brimming with exciting exceptional pieces to discover including exquisite unexpected sources such as Bodymap and Katherine Hamnett.  It's well worth a visit to view the extensive selection whilst simultaneously supporting this important institution.
