London Bound

I’m currently planning a research trip to London in December and am trying to decide what I can cram in to a long weekend.

Already booked is Isabella blow: Fashion Galore! at Somerset house, celebrating the extraordinary life of the late Fashion patron;


I have toyed with the idea of taking a little skate at Somerset House while I’m there but decided that I’m maybe a little out of practice.

Other must see’s include ‘Hello my name is Paul Smith‘ at the Design museum;


Pop Art Design’ at the Barbican, and a Gincognito at the new Gin joint.

‘Only in England: Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr’, at the Science Museum looks like a really quirky exhibition of photography from the late 1960’s and 70’s capturing eccentricities of the english way of life.

Just take a look at these Ladies:


Of course it would be silly not to take the chance to do a little shopping while I am there so I will be popping in to Present and Correct for some lovely stationery – I will be hunting down this 2014 wall planner by Crispin Finn;


and of course Liberty of London to top up my sewing supplies.
