Fashion Diversity@Museum of London

As part of London Fashion Week the Museum of London has been involved in a series of workshops and fashion shows held in the main foyer of the Museum as 'Fashion Diversity'. The photos here are a couple of outfits from the Junky Styling collection.

Whilst looking around the museum I noticed an interesting comment within the 'trade' themes. It is a quote from a trader in the 17th century but the name was not listed:

"If I should begin to set down the variety of fashions and foreign stuffs brought into England in these items I might seem to number to starts of heaven and sands of the sea"

Although globalisation has become an issue for great debate, trade and export of goods have always been a large part of the history of London.
