With nearly three decades of experience in the fashion world, Anna Sui has a lot of work to exhibit and London's Fashion & Textile museum has put together an exhibition featuring over 100 looks.

Anna started off her fashion career in New York, studying at Parsons and held her first catwalk show in 1991.

Her famous New York boutique is recreated as part of the exhibition with purple walls, Tiffany lamps and dozens of mannequins showcasing her collection.


The looks showcase all the classic archetypes including surfer, punk, grunge, schoolgirl and nomad.

Upstairs you can browse through cabinets filled with shoes, accessories and her gorgeously deisgned packaging.

A corridor filled with mood boards gives a behind-the-scenes look at her inspiration and ideas, as well as her collaborations with other designers and artists.


With music being such a huge influence on her work, you can catch an episode of MTV's Fashionable Loud where 90's rock band Elastica perform live to one her catwalk shows.

The final room showcased a collection of artwork from various artists created to promote Anna's work, made famous by her iconic packaging.

Running until October 1st, don't miss your chance to step into the inspiring and fashionable world of Anna Sui.
