A Fashion Lover’s Guide to London
Renowned for being the innovative fashion capital of the world, a fashion study trip to London is a great choice and one of our most popular itineraries. Students will see the largest and most comprehensive collections of dresses in the world. Key items include rare seventeenth-century gowns, eighteenth-century ‘mantua’ dresses, 1930s evening wear, 1960s day wear, and post-war couture at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The Fashion & Textile Museum has an exciting selection of exhibitions and displays throughout the year, showcasing a rich variety of contemporary fashion and textile items that are ideal for creative students, and of course, a fashion trip to London would not be complete without a visit to Camden Market, the birth place of many budding London fashion designers.
