    I hadn’t heard of John Alexander Skelton before reading this and your post meant that his name was on my radar. Because of this my daughter and I have just returned from a really enjoyable ‘Fashion in Motion’ event in the Raphael Gallery of the V&A – Mr Skelton’s clothes ‘accompanied by music and dance inspired by nature’. It was enjoyable crazy – Wicker Man, Pandemonium Scene from the Olympic Opening Ceremony, the music from the theatrical production of War Horse all sprang to mind. And at its heart some very nice shapes and tailoring. Thanks for bringing this particular designer to my attention.
