This blockbuster exhibition looks at the complex relationship between fashion and nature. The latest in a series of major fashion exhibitions at the V&A, Fashioned from Nature explore how fashionable dress continuously draws on the beauty of nature for inspiration and how pieces by the likes of Christian Dior, Dries van Noten and Philip Treacy reflect this. The exhibition will also delve into how fashion's processes and constant demand for raw materials can have a damaging effect on the environment. Pieces on display include Emma Watson's Calvin Klein dress made from recycled plastic bottles, an upcycled dress by Christopher Raeburn, and an 1875 pair of earrings formed from the heads of two real Honeycreeper birds.
From Piccadilly Circus to Oxford Circus, the capital's world-famous Regent Street will be closed to through traffic so it can, once again, host the annual Regent Street Motor Show, the UK's largest free-to-view motoring extravaganza.

Held the day before the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, the motor show includes around 100 of the cars vying for the honours. Added to all this are stage shows, street entertainment by dance troupes and a motorcycle stunt team, making it an exciting day out for car fans.
