The Concise Dictionary of Dress by Judith Clark and Adam Phillips is a brilliantly composed installation.
Consisting of 11 cleverly chosen pieces set amongst the collections stored within Blythe House, each with a definition that somehow defines yet defies the item or items.

A mind tingling tour takes you from the rooftops to the coal cellars.

Go see it, your mind will be provoked.
no picture taking is allowed, so buy the book, you won't regret it
