How are you today? Has the summer holiday started there? Do you have any
Last weekend I went to London for a meeting with people who had lived and
worked in Japan. However, I decided to take advantage of being in London
and searched for interesting things to do. By chance, there was an
exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum showing exhibits of work
by Anna Sui. She is my favourite fashion designer so I was absolutely over
the moon (extremely happy) to see the exhibition!
As well as telling us how Anna Sui became a fashion designer, the museum
also held exhibits of the clothes she'd designed...
Displays of boots she'd designed...
And cabinets of her cosmetics and accessories...
In addition, each gallery was scented using Anna Sui perfumes. The first
room I went into was scented with the perfume I use. It's name is Sui
Dreams, and there was an explanation of this perfume in the gallery...
Do you think the explanation matches my character??!
Of all the exhibits, I had two favourites.
1. The fabric, colours, and details of these clothes, tights, and boots are
so beautifully detailed and incredibly intricate...
2. The colours and combination of this shirt, skirt, and caridigan is so
The exhibition was titled "The World of Anna Sui", and I certainly felt I
was in another world. Did you know we can't buy Anna Sui clothes in the
shops in the UK? So, this exhibition was very special for me. In fact, I
was so happy that I cried! I've decided I'll have to go back to Japan
someday to buy some Anna Sui clothes!
Finally, I'd like to say a huge thank you to Mrs N (who used to be Miss S
but she got married last year) who was the first person to get me
interested in Anna Sui in Hiroshima. I hope we can talk about Anna Sui
together again someday.
Thank you for reading this. I hope you are well and I will look forward to
seeing you again next week. Until then, take care! Best wishes, from
