Exhibition File – Sport and Fashion

Tomorrow night is the Opening Ceremony for the summer Olympics. I’m pretty excited. If you are in England, this exhibition will help get you in the mood if Olympic fever hasn’t already gotten to you.

Sport and Fashion at the Fashion Museum in Bath “examines the close connection between active sportswear and fashion by showcasing examples of historic sportswear from the museum collection alongside modern fashions and the very best of today’s sportswear.”

You’ll get to see tennis dresses, riding habits, and historic swimsuits. Designer pieces that have been inspired by sport include those by Stella McCartney for Adidas, Vivienne Westwood, and Helmut Lang.

Sport and Fashion runs throughout 2012.
