Last weekend I went to the Knitwear exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum.

Because it was a private collection I wasn’t allowed to take any photos of the garments within the main exhibition which is a shame as the collection was really interesting and had lots of details that I would have liked to have recorded.

The collection went from the twenties to make do and mend right the way up to the nineties. It included some amazing rayon pieces and evening knitwear. It was great to be able to see them up close and to really see the detail that went into them.

It was a great exhibition and I would recommend it to anyone interested in knitwear.
