May 25th was a free day for all of us and I spent my day by visiting the V & A Museum where Vivienne Westwood had an exhibition celebrating the last 34 years of her fashion career. Her influence on the fashion world has been stunning to say the least and what I most enjoyed about this exhibition is the fact that there were so many young designers in the making there, taking photographs or drawing, trying to capture a sense of her style. Truly amazing judging by a couple of photographs I have here for you to enjoy.
Then I walked to Harrods because I wanted to see their 'Fantasy Gardens'.
All the windows had beautiful displays of miniature gardens including Diarmuid Gavin's conceptual window. Their were 40 in total by top designers from Dior to Peter Rabbit. Then to get a Krispy Kreme doughnut! I got there and was standing in line with my 90p to pay for it when the lady hands me a doughnut saying it was free and to enjoy! Harrods giving away something free? Oh happy day! So I took my doughnut and walked down through Hyde Park and visited the Rose Garden where I caught glimpse of a most beautiful iris, then down to the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain that was not even open, then past the Albert Memorial, Royal Albert Hall and finally rested my sights on this Ducati motor bike that I knew Tom would like to see. A very relaxing and wonderful day.
