Thea Porter – Fashion and Textile Museum

Every other season the boho style steps in the catwalk and makes its way to all the festivals. It became so banal that we sometimes forget how chic the right piece can be.

Thea Porter might have thrive in the 1970’s, but her work went beyond the hippie mood. She was inspired by her culture to create kaftans and pieces of couture worth it of royals and rock stars.

Her name gets overshadowed by Yves Saint Laurent Morocco collection probably because she was never organised in her finances. She was known for investing her money in the clothes, made of one of kind fabric and print.

The exotic designer is finally getting the recognition she deserves with a complete exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London. Pieces lent by private collectors tell the story of a woman in love with beauty and life.

Located in Bermondsey, the museum shows the exhibition until May 3rd.
