Last stop Whole foods and the V&A
On the last day with my parents we went to the giant whole foods in Kensington, and then briefly visited the V&A. Each time I see the Costume section in the V&A I am reminded how they took the HUGE selection of antique textiles you could view behind these glass drawers. You could even take them out and study them closer. I think they might be in the design museum now, which has an entry fee! I wish that the display of "fashion" was better and complementary to the business that makes up most of the uk's economy.
