I have just got back from the Proud Gallery in London to see rare photographs of the gorgeous Marilyn Monroe. The photos were taken by Milton H. Green.

Marilyn met Milton at a Look Magazine photo shoot in 1953, they formed a close bond and business partnership. The photographs capture her elegance, and innocence. You feel she is at ease with her pictures being taken by Milton.

If like me you want to add a touch a glamour to your day, the gallery is situated a short walk from Charing Cross station and there is no charge to see the exhibition.

Up Close with Marilyn is at Proud Gallery – 32 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6BP til 24th June 2018.

Missoni Exhibition

I had the pleasure of attending the press day of the new Missoni exhibition held at the Fashion and Textile Musuem in Bermondsey street. The family travelled from Italy to present their showcase. Their collection consisted of furnishing fabrics and fashion. The brands distinctive design has a sensational appeal that is instantly recognisable. With the family business running since the mid 50’s you can’t help but love that they have stuck to a quality ethic of producing luxury items from the beginning to the present day. 

The exhibition runs til 4th September at the Fashion and Textile Museum. Closed on Mondays.
