Remember how I told you I would be visiting the V&A over the weekend? I did and it was definitely a very interesting visit. There is a free part, the newly opened Fashion Galleries, that showcases clothes from 1750 to our days. There are some stunning pieces in this collection, like the wedding lace made of Brussels lace and gorgeous dress very reminiscent of Downton Abbey, for all of us fans. The red 1950's Dior is an incredible piece of fashion art. (apologies for the not so great Iphone pictures)
I took some sneaky pics of the Ballgowns exhibition. There were beautiful contemporary gowns from Erdem to McQueen. The best of british fashion was represented.
