Go & See ..... Frida Kahlo

August 6, 2018

We really enjoyed the Frida Kahlo exhibition currently on at the Victoria & Albert Museum showcasing a collection of her belongings and clothing.

It was amazing to see her iconic dresses and jewellery so close up, we predict lots of embroidery and Mexican inspired florals in the coming seasons! 

The exhibition is on until 4th November, so plenty of time to go and see it!

Go & See ..... Orla & Kiely

June 11, 2018

We totally loved this gorgeous Orla Kiely Exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum. Showcasing her career so far, it gave us a huge insight into her life as a designer. Bold, simplistic, retro patterns surround the museum with giant sized garments and our personal favourite were the rotating cube displays - super cute. 

The exhibition runs until the 23rd of September 2018 - be sure to visit!

Go & See ..... Modigliani at the Tate

December 11, 2017

Hope everyone had a lovely, snowy weekend! 

Last week we were at the Tate Modern to see the amazing Amedeo Modigliani exhibition. Along side his sculptures and portraits were his famous nudes and an incredible VR experience. We could have looked at his paintings all day long and it left us longing for the Paris 1910.

Make sure you when you go you try out the VR experience, it's really fascinating. You may have to queue but it's so worth it!

Modigliani is on at the Tate Modern until 2nd April.

Happy Monday everyone! Today we have a round up of some of our favourite stores in Paris that we visited back in July. There were so many lovely shops but below are our top 3!
