I think the Fashion and Textiles Museum in Bermondsey has definitely upped it's exhibition game for the Missoni Art Colour event. I have a feeling they were influenced by the outstanding Alexander McQueen at the V&A and thought they needed to get more dramatic and atmospheric.
This exhibition certainly is bold, dramatic and atmospheric thanks to some creative lighting, interesting displays and a 'white-noise' soundtrack especially commissioned for the exhibition. Recordings of the knitting machines used to make Missoni fabric were looped together to create a soundscape that certainly added to the exhibition experience.
As a trained textile designer I found the sketchbooks and technical notes for the knitted fabrics really interesting. The most striking aspect of the show is the wall of mannequins wearing a vast collection of amazing Missoni garments.
This exhibition runs until the 4th September and I would highly recommend a visit to this stunning little museum if you get a chance this summer.
