I love a good exhibition and Leeds is full of them at the moment. ‘Tailored’ is a free exhibition currently at Leeds Museum exploring the significance of tailored fashion. Smart, tailored clothes make my heart sing and my favourite events are those you get to dress up for so this exhibition was right up my street.
When you walk in, the first thing you see is this amazing Vivienne Westwood ‘Winter Coat’. It’s an amazing burnt orange colour, which I’ve not managed to capture in my photographs (they looked amazing as RAW, then rubbish when I finally managed to convert to jpeg, and my editing skills failed to get them to their former glory. I need a course or something). Other pictures are below. The exhibition is on until the 3rd of January and there are loads of events linked to it including learning to weave and working with artists to make a collaborative artwork. More details are at www.leeds.gov.uk/tailored And there’s another exhibition over at Lotherton Hall until 31st December on 1950s glamour. See www.leeds.gov.uk/lothertonhall
