Today was quite an exciting day in Leeds. It was the launch of the M and S archive, which as I had been involved in a styling project for my course I got to go along to.
The archive is great, if anyone went to the Marks in Time exhibition when it was held in the Parkinson court a few years back it is basically an extension of that. A great mix of clothes, homey nick nacks and food based ephemera are all on display. I have to say the exhibition design is very good and the new building it is housed is a great addition to the Leeds university campus.
Here are a few cheeky snaps inside at the opening
And here is me in a bit of vintage 50s M and S which I thought was rather fitting for the occasion!
It is free to go and have a look round the “exhibition” part of the archive, so I highly recommend a little wander if you are local to Leeds.
