British style genius: the rebels


I have just spent an hour without moving a muscle watching a riveting programme about British style focusing on Westwood, Galliaono and McQueen. If you didn't catch it, you can see it again from tomorrow, I think on BBC iplayer

Wasn't it fantastic? I don't think I have ever seen anything so thoughtful or interesting about fashion design on TV.

I watched it too yesterday and it was amazing. I am happy that I recorded it on my dvd so I can watch it again. I also liked the previous one about tailoring and am looking forward to see the next episode By Royal appointment.
For those who are not able to receive BBC television you can visit the website and see some highlights of the episodes.

Yes, it was a good programme if only to confirm what sweeties Galliano and McQueen are and how barmy Westwood has become! But what was really interesting was how intelligently Galliano and McQueen spoke about their craft and the research behind every collection.
