Before there were spas, there was Brighton. A seaside health resort in East Sussex, England, its popularity has been based on it being a health resort for sea bathing as a purported cure for illnesses.
At the crossroads of the Roman and Anglo-Saxon occupation of the British Isles, Brighton was already considered an ancient town when it made the pages of Domesday Book, a manuscript record of the “Great Survey” of much of England and parts of Wales completed in 1086 by order of King William the Conqueror.
But, it was not until the Georgian era when Brighton was considered “fashionable” which was encouraged by the patronage of the Prince Regent (later King George IV), who spent much time in the town and constructed the Royal Pavilion during the early part of his Regency.
Two hundred years had passed since then and Brighton continues to be a favorite spot of the fashion set. A popular tourist destination, Brighton is renowned for its diverse communities, quirky shopping areas and its large cultural, music and art scenes. Hence, it is not surprising that many fashion designers find inspiration when they visit Brighton.
