All Things London: Part 2 - TravelSTYLE

As I continue to keep you in the know on all of the fashionable and stylish things going on in London, there's no way I could pass up the opportunity to fill you in on this major exhibition. It is "a glamorous, comprehensive look at Italian Fashion from the end of the Second World War to the present day. The story is explored through the key individuals and organizations that have contributed to its reputation for quality and style. It includes both women's and menswear to highlight the exceptional quality of techniques, materials and expertise for which Italy has become renowned." In short, it is a grand exploration of Italian tailoring, the growth and popularity of Italian Designers, Italy's economic growth through the world of design and it's fashionable future.
