The Horniman Museum

Last week I went to The Horniman Museum with my Fashion Cultural Contextual & Representation class.  We went to see the The Body Adorned: Dressing London exhibition, they described the exhibition like this: 

"The exhibition features hundreds of stunning objects from the Horniman’s collections including adorned figures, early tattooing instruments and headdresses, a film installation by The Light Surgeons, several wardrobes of London residents exploring why they wear what they wear and urban street portraits taken by young people."

I found the exhibition really good, it was nice to see something else for a change rather than always going to the V&A for inspiration. 
I know I haven't talked much about my FCCR lectures, but thats mostly because this lecture is all based on theory and seems less exciting in general. 
The reason why we went to the museum was to try out an analysis theory that we have read about in one of our readings. 

These past few weeks, we've also been studying artifacts found at MoDA (Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture) and at our own Shepherd's Library, where we have a materials room, which has an extensive range of really interesting things that relate to both fashion, art and design in other forms.
