natural light made for a pleasant few hours.
My favourite display was the Woodland Boudoir and I quote from the show guide:-
In fairy tales the woods stand for female sexuality, a place for young girls to get lost in but inhabited by mature women. Designed by Yulia Badian - Silk Felt, the boudoir combines the talents of 8 artists in celebration of mature female sexuality. "Lady Spring" has risen from her winter-bed, spring returns, sap rises and love is in the air.
I like the celebration of the mature woman - long may we flourish!
At the other end of the age spectrum was an impressive display with the results of the National Fashion Competition. Organised by creative charity FAD and King's Ely Independent School, clothes designed and created by 16-18 year olds were shown. It was wonderful to see such young talent being encouraged and nurtured.
This show is different from that at Alexandra Palace in October, but I do think the organisers should consider inviting "names" in the textile world to exhibit.
