Museum of London
‘London is renowned for being the innovative fashion capital of the world. It is the very unpredictable and original nature of the way people design and wear clothes in this city that defines the London Look, a combination of free spirit, heritage and adventure.'
Alexandra Shulman, Editor British Vogue
