British Style Genius - Breaking the Rules

The BBC has gone and done it again. Their new series British Style Genius is amazing. The 3 rebels of the British fashion world were featured in the last programme called Breaking the Rules. You can watch it online for the next 5 days - be quick

Watching the couture collections of Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood's rise from Punk to Dame was mind blowing. Makes me proud to be British as we don't follow any rules and have the best street style in the world and that's official.

I thought the programme was fabulous too, Di, with all that energy and freedom of thought without rules. Totally inspiring and some of the catwalk shows were wonderful theatre - I couldnt help wondering what happened to the butterflies!

Have the series taped and am looking forward to seeing it. I spent an evening with Ms Westwood many years ago, did not appreciate her then. The folly of youth. So glad her clothes are for sale in Newcastle. LOVE McQueen.
