Been looking foward to to this day for a while now. Meeting up with my friend and fabulous designer TrueBritKnits for a visit to the V&A.
So inspiring, love visiting the V&A especially with such good company, as per usual didn't take many photo's but here are the pics I did take.
This first group are a selection of Middle Eastern Tiles and plaques love the colours and detail, unfortunately the pictures do not capture the vibrancy of the colours.
This is a knitted piece it was so intricate, don't ask me how old, I get lost in the exhibits and forget important things like dates!
Embroidery, breathtaking! Again wish I had taken more pics, but the pieces are so much better in the flesh, as it were.
|Think this was part of a Tudor jacket the central panel was so intricate.|
|The detail on these tree's were amazing such depth.|
These are just pictures of exhibits that I needed to capture, they just had the 'Oooo' factor!
|These 'mahoosive' pillars were so detailed, we were standing on the 1st floor balcony to give you an idea of their size.|
Anyway it was much more exciting being there than my pictures really convey. Had a brilliant day.
Until next time......Nicky xx
