Discover the Fashion and Textile Museum at Clothes Show London

29 May 2009

The Clothes Show London will ooze glamour and cool and will be the place to see and be seen for anyone interested in fashion – the perfect venue for the Fashion and Textile Museum, whose stand will be one of the highlights at the show. 

Offering a unique taste of the FTM experience, it will showcase with a special preview of the forthcoming Undercover exhibition and offer the chance to be one of the first to buy tickets for this highly-anticipated exhibition. You can learn more about the FTM’s programme of exciting fashion and design events, including talks and workshops, there will be a host of unique offers, a prize draw and opportunities to purchase exclusive fashion items.

For the first time, FTM will create a ‘pop up’ shop at the show where you can buy fantastic designer pieces from the young fashion and design talent stocked by the Shop@FTM, as well as a large selection of fashion related books and FTM merchandise.
 
The FTM stand will also provide an opportunity to catch an exclusive preview of the upcoming exhibition Undercover: The Evolution of Underwear, which opens on 12th June 2009. This exciting new exhibition traces the evolution of underwear, from health garment, shape definer to fashion ‘must have’. It explores a number of themes such as boudoir to everyday glamour – ‘Stars and their bras’ looking at celebrity branding; how research and innovation has changed the way we wear our underwear; and how the changing face of underwear advertising and marketing meshes with social and cultural changes.
 
In addition, there will be the chance to enter a prize draw to win a free curator's tour of the new exhibition, along with a short break in an area selected by Vogue as one of London's coolest quarters. The lucky winner and a friend will enjoy a luxury night at the Bermondsey Square Hotel including dinner at Alfie's Kitchen, the newly opened boutique hotel's fantastic restaurant.
 
The Clothes Show London will be a mecca for every aspiring fashionista – so the FTM stand will be a significant high point for all the visitors.
