England and the UK

London, England. World famous for it's heritage, industry, architecture and culture. From galleries and museums, fine restaurants, and some of the most beautiful city parks in the  world, take and adventure, follow my blog and get a streetside view of this amazing city. I have a keen interest in the transformation of textiles and fashion through out the ages. I document the historic view from the eyes of painters and crafters in centuries past, up to the modern high fashion of Alexander McQueen. You will view the masterpieces on display at the National Gallery and the Tate Britain, comparing the garments worn by aristocrats who modeled their finest, to the Pre Raphaelite painters of 19th Century England who represented mythology and finery in their paintings.
