Kaffe Fassett Exhibition @ Fashion & Textiles Museum

4th July 2013

I was in two minds about going to the Kaffe Fassett exhibition @ F&T Museum. I’ve never been much of a fan of his knitwear patterns and cross-stitch needlework which I’ve always found too twee. Anyway I did end up going and yep my opinion on his knitwear and cross-stitch hasn’t changed but I did like his patchwork/quilting work. According to the exhibition guide Kaffe started quilting in the early 90’s and following a trip to India his work was influenced by the vivid colours and patterns he saw. The large quilting pieces on display were oh so beautiful and the way fellow textile artist Sue Timney had displayed the work against dramatic pops of colour and her signature monochrome stripes elevated the visual experience further. I do think that’s why I’m a big fan of this often overlooked museum- pieces are never just displayed against white walls- the team at F&T Museum manage to reinvent the entire space for each exhibition so you enter a new world every time you visit

Ranveer Singh’s Style: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

25th June 2013

Ok, I have to admit that my Bolly crush is Ranveer Singh (I can hear you giggling through my computer screen) It all started with Band Baaja Baaraat. Yes, the crush kinda waned when his fashion choices regularly included shiny suits, bad print vests and an array of dodgy headwear but am glad to see he’s FINALLY got himself a stylist and is now looking ohhh soo dapper. Hopefully he’ll keep the stylist once the Lootera promos have finished

Here’s my style spotlight on Ranveer- The good, the bad & the ugly

The Good
