HALF TERM: Top Exhibitions for mini-fashionistas
Updated: Oct 25
This Autumn, London has been awash with exhibitions with a fashion-y twist. We have been to all of them and reviewed them with a family audience in mind. Here is our verdict. Click on the titles for full reviews and to book. Have fun and do let us know what you think!
BEST FOR... label lovers, fashion-conscious teens
In truth, we were surprised how much we loved this show. Yes it is commercial, but it is a brilliant, OTT immersive experience. At 180 Strand.
BEST FOR... urban stylists of all ages
Practically next door to Gucci, this upbeat delight of a show in Somerset House is full of sharp tailoring and dance floor beats. Plus a pop up nail bar.
BEST FOR... politics and history students
Fascinating look at how textiles have been used to shape our views in Bermondsey's funky Fashion & Textile Museum. Great workshop space for younger siblings less interested in the show. And there is Borough Market for lunch afterwards.
BEST FOR... a fun, contemporary vibe and for mums and dads who remember their raving days
The Design Museum in Kensington High Street celebrates the Fashion Council Awards. And, for those not into fashion, there is a skateboarding show on too. With bookable boarding sessions.
BEST FOR... families who have been efficient and already got tickets
The blockbuster at the V&A is a design delight. BUT it is sold out and, in truth, we think better for a quiet outing without your kids.
BEST FOR... excellent free, half term workshops
Lots of fun, creative drop in workshops run until Friday at the Museum of London Docklands. Take the boat to get there!
BEST FOR... everyone. And you only have until the end of this week to see it!
There are still a few slots left for the last few days of this gem of a show at Kensington Palace.
