Choose your style from a selection of 6 different aprons

In honour of the 150th anniversary of the Lewis Carrol classic ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood in London have created an exhibition around 'Alice' which amongst other exhibits highlights her iconic white pinafore. For Alice the white apron became less of a fashion accessory  and more about her identity.

This goes one step further in the kitchen where a chef’s apron doesn’t just protect from chef from exuberant sauces and spillages it’s also apparanltly an expression of the character and competence of the chef.
