Owner description: Founded in 2003 by iconic British designer Zandra Rhodes, The Fashion and Textile Museum is a cutting edge centre for contemporary fashion and textiles in London. The Museum showcases a programme of changing exhibitions, as well as offering a varied programme of courses, workshops and events. Now redeveloped and operated by Newham College, the Museum is a hub of learning, ideas and networking for creative industries. The Fashion and Textile Museum does not have a permanent display, but instead offers an exciting program of focused temporary exhibitions and displays throughout the year. This allows the Museum to showcase a rich variety of contemporary fashion and textile items and designers. You can find out more about our current and up-coming exhibitions and events at ftmlondon.org. Situated in the heart of fashionable Bermondsey Village, just a short walk from London Bridge Station, The Museum is a truly impressive building, designed by renowned Mexican architect; Ricardo Legorreta.

The Fashion and Textile Museum is a hot pink museum owned by designer Zandra Rhodes and is in Bermondsey. The exhibition space holds one exhibition at a time and closes between exhibitions, so only visit when there's an exhibition on.

Most of the recent shows have been absolutley stunning - Horrickses pretty summer dresses, a delve into the archives of Sanderson interiors back catalogue, vintage clothing, sexy menswear photography - when the FTM is on good form it's the best place to be.

There are occasional duff shows like the Scandinavian design one which showcased some fairly amateruish sewing, but as someone who loves sewing, textiles and craft, this is my second favourite museum after the V&A and I love it to bits! Go there! Go now!
