[Review] The Body Adorned: Dressing London

This is a bit late in the day as this exhibition at the Horniman Museum has been there since March and finishes on 6th January. However, unlike most of their special exhibitions, it is free and worth mentioning. Taking the cultural diversity of London as a starting point, it looks at the different roles that clothing and other body adornment can take, whether for protection, display, war or ritual. By being family-friendly it unfortunately misses any sexual aspects of body adornment (no penis sheaths of lingerie here) but apart from that it is great fun and well worth popping in if you are nearby.
