The Thea Porter 70s Bohemian Chic exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum here in London closed just last weekend and in case you missed the show, here’s an inside glimpse.
Highlights from the retrospective included Porter’s seven signature looks: the Abaya & Kaftan; the Gipsy dress; the Faye dress; the Brocade-panel dress; the Wrap-over dress; the Chazara jacket; and the Sirwal skirt.

A Parisian Interlude, which launched in April 1976, was produced by a manufacturer in Paris and was originally a 25-piece collection of high-end, ready-to-wear garments in a more classical style. My photograph doesn’t do it justice but the garments were very luxurious and sophisticated.
Their upcoming exhibition is Riviera Style – Resort & Swimwear since 1900, which runs from May 22 – August 30, 2015.
