Museums and galleries include the V&A, Geffrye Museum, British Museum and Wallace Collection and fashion designers include Vivienne Westwood, Mary Katrantzou and Hussein Chalayan. International content includes wood carvers from Japan, artisans from Korea, wood block printers from China, designer-makers from Hong Kong, ceramists from Taiwan, umbrella and cufflink makers from France, porcelain painters from Germany, glass artists from Sweden, furniture makers from Denmark and a guitar maker from Spain.
