Fashion and Textile Museum, London

If you are lucky enough to be in London for Christmas, check out "Couture Inside Out - Zandra Rhodes" - an opportunity to see some highlights from her archives and a chance to see her silk screened textiles up close at the Fashion and Textile Museum on 22 December.

If you're going to be in the UK next Spring, you might want to check out Kaffe Fassett's exhibition - A Life in Colour - which will run at the F & T Museum from 22 March 2013 to 29 June 2013.  It will be his first exhibition in London since his successful show at the V+A in 1988.  He has been a huge influence as a knitwear and textile designer and although some of his work can seem OTT, his exuberant use of colour has been an inspiration and he was responsible for making tapestry and needlework fashionable again.
