Style has meaning. Fashion can command the world’s attention. The heritage of a country is imbedded in its garments. Messages are delivered from the streets to the palaces and that is why we love the TRUE BRITS. We take you to England for a spirited look at what has formed their legacy in fashion.
We look into the history of British style through multiple lenses as any good tradition and movement cannot be pinned to one influence. London has given us design heroes that have broken ground to become legends in their own right. Dame Vivienne Westwood recently drove a military tank to the Prime Minister’s home village to protest environmental rights. In the same season, she delivered a show rife with all the notes of cultivated punk in floral veils and sequined kilts paired with floral overcoats modeled by dauntless female and male models. Alexander McQueen was unrivaled in his artful and ethereal collections that have most recently been housed in the Victoria and Albert Museum in a solo exhibition entitled Savage Beauty.
