If you're into nautical attire (think stripy T-shirt and epauletted jackets), then you're just going to love the fashion exhibition being launched today at Greenwich's National Maritime Museum. Be inspired by 'Sailor Chic' and then discover more about fashion, costume, image and identity with curator or student tours, knitting sessions and symposia.
'Sailor Chic' is a celebration of fashion's love affair with the sea. No summer catwalk collection is ever devoid of the trend. And the exhibition will prove just that as it packs over 20 costumes in total (one of which is by YSL that has never been seen before and several pieces by Jean Paul Gaultier) alongside paintings and drawings showing the look through the decades.
The exhibition runs until December 2, 2007. Open daily 10.00–17.00 (18.00 until 3 September). Last admission 45 minutes before closing. Adults £5.00 Concessions £4.00 Children (under 16) free. The exhibition is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Book tickets at www.nmm.ac.uk/sailorchic or for further information call: 0870 780 9218.
