Upcoming Fashion Exhibits - The British Way

December 05, 2016

There's something special about visiting a fashion exhibit. You get exposed to varying cuts, styles, materials and designs. Each garment offers insight into the inner workings of that period. It's more than fashion, it's history and in some cases art combined. With this said, there are a couple of upcoming fashion exhibits that will be taking place across the pond. If your travels take you there, I'm sure you'll want to make it a point to visit these.

"House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at the Chatsworth"

About three hours North of London sits Chatsworth House.


This House will showcase designs worn by "the Cavendish family, including Bess of Hardwick, one of the most powerful women of the 16th century; the 18th century 'Empress of Fashion' Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire; and Adele Astaire, the sister and dance partner of Fred Astaire. Deborah Devonshire and Nancy Mitford, two of the Mitford sisters; model Stella Tennant and John F Kennedy’s sister ‘Kick’ Kennedy will also be central to the show," according to the Chatsworth House.

With this range of individuals, you can imagine there will also be many designers behind the fashions. These individuals and brands include Jean Phillipe Worth, Christian Dior, Gucci, Helmut Lang, Margiela, Vivienne Westwood, Erdem, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane and Vetements.



What most excites me about this exhibit is the fashions, of course, but also the rest of the exhibit, as I am looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. The other items I'm referring to and are included in this exhibit are jewelry, archival material, designs and textiles and personal family collections, including items belonging to the current Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.


Hamish Bowles, international editor-at-large at American Vogue, is the curator of this exhibit.

"House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at the Chatsworth" runs from March 25 to October 22, 2017. Learn more at Chatsworth House.

"Diana: Her Fashion Story"

Meanwhile, back in London, "Diana: Her Fashion Story" opens in February and showcases a range of outfits she wore with some only recently rediscovered and acquired by Historic Royal Palaces.



"[This exhibit] will trace the evolution of the Princess’ style, from the demure, romantic outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life," shared Historic Royal Palaces. "From her earliest royal engagements, everything Diana wore was closely scrutinized, and the exhibition will explore how she navigated her unique position in the public eye: learning to use her image to engage and inspire people and to champion the causes she cared about."

Designs range from suits by Catherine Walker to the pale pink Emanuel blouse Diana wore in her engagement portrait by Lord Snowdon to the iconic blue velvet gown she wore when she danced with John Travolta at the White House.

In addition to garments, there will be some of the original fashion sketches on display.

"Diana: Her Fashion Story" opens on February 24, 2017. Learn more at Historic Royal Palaces.

I can't wait! Both should be great shows.

From Bartender to Congresswoman

There are times when life throws you a curveball that’s so unbelievable you can barely believe it. This is what happened to a career politician by the name of Joseph Crowley in November 2018 when he was voted out of office. A 28-year-old female bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who received 57% of the vote – suddenly became the youngest woman to serve in the United States Congress.

“Reporters Ultimately Don’t Stop”

This is first time I’ve focused intensely and in-depth on a male for Adea. However, I truly believe the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow deserves this salute. In a nutshell, his article in The New Yorker was so sensational that it changed the course of history in America, and perhaps the world, by kicking off the incredible #MeToo movement.

Maye Musk Is Really Rockin’

On April 19th of this year, Musk turns 72-years-old and her life has never been better! CLICK HERE to read our first blog about this lovely lady. 

Now, according to an article I read in Bazaar’s January 2020 edition, Musk is the oldest star ever to appear in a CoverGirl ad campaign. She looks 20 years younger than she is – in other words: absolutely terrific.  Her incredible life story is now being told in a book titled “A Woman Makes a Plan” with startling photos from the family vault.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
