On Friday we (as in the fashion students) went to London, to explore some fabric shops, see what was out there, but it was more or less unsuccessful regarding my FMP, as I'm going for sustainable fabrics, although far away from polyester! But it was a nice way to spend my first day back from Denmark, just hanging out with the crazy kids from Aylesbury College. Later on we checked out Liberty, first time there, I know! Outrageous! Definitely worth a visit, need to go there more often! Argh, there's nothing like being in designer heaven and feeling the materials, looking at the construction and stitching - I live such an exciting life!
When we had finished in Liberty we were free to go, my original plan was to go to the V&A and check out their Asian/Japan gallery, but instead I ended up going to Selfridges with my tutor (you can call me teachers pet if you want to!).
Have English people EVER heard of air condition, I'm surprised that I didn't dehydrate in there! Again heaven had come to earth, I couldn't believe it when I saw the above Comme Des Garcons dress! It wasn't even in a class box, like some of the really expensive dresses were. I was like a 4 year old really wanting a certain doll, I looked a my tutor and said: its a shame I can't take it to the changing room and try it on, I don't look like your average rich kid! I won't go into anymore technical detailing of how is was made.. But gosh!
Even after finishing circling around Selfridges, my tutor asked if there was anything else I wanted to see, I replied and say can we go back to Comme?
