POP at the Fashion & Textiles Museum

On Tuesday evening Miss Cove and I took ourselves off to a teachers evening at the FTM. The current Pop exhibition explores the 1950s/60s movement in fashion. Highlights include items from Elton John’s personal wardrobe, purple flares worn by Donovan, the pop-art fashions of Mary Quant as well as Quant’s early modernist pieces from the original Bazaar.

After mooching around the exhibition we were treated to a presentation from Sheila Ayton- an unsung fashion hero and Wallis designer for 40 years. Her interesting talk on her love hate relationship with couture made me wish I grew up 30 years earlier.

Here are some images of some of the work. Get yourself there. £5 for you lot.
