I am back in Nepal. Really enjoyed my time in London. Besides browsing the city's shops I paid a visit to the Museum of London and two interesting exhibitions - Isabella Blow, Fashion Galore at Somerset House and Pearls at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Can't say that Museum of London is one of my favourite museums but there were a few interesting pieces that I am going to show you in the next post. The main reason to visit the Isabella Blow exhibition was my wish to see Philip Treacy creations with my own eyes and from close distance. And man! there was a really large collection of his hats on display, including the famous lobster and butterflies hats. Of course, there was much more to see and admire there: extravagant outfits from Isabella's personal wardrobe, family photographs of her aristocratic upbringing, McQueen's early designs and his Spring Summer 2008 collection dedicated to Isabella after her death.
Considering my interest in jewelry I couldn't miss the Pearls exhibition. There were around 200 pieces of pearly jewelry and art works, including a necklace given to Marilyn Monroe by Joe DiMaggio in 1954, a pearl-drop earring worn by Charles I at his execution in 1649 and magnificent tiaras worn by European nobility.
