The world’s greatest embroidery exhibited in London

As part of events to mark its 250th anniversary, London's oldest surviving embroidery house, Hand and Lock has opened a pop-up exhibition in East London. Curated by the London College of fashion, and featuring ancient pieces alongside contemporary catwalk garments - the showcase aims to celebrate the capital's heritage with the craft and art form.

And if you want to catch that exhibition you will have to move fast as the pop up only runs until the 13th of July at the Bishopsgate Institute.
