Victoria & Albert Museum: a special place that most of us heard of, even if never visited.
Always great and interesting exhibitions planned.
London gives visitors and citizens so many places to see with outstanding shows. Also, the buildings are just second-to-none.
So the V&A is having something similar to a fashion show starting on 19th May 2012 until 6th January 2013.
An event which could be qualified as “beautiful and rare“.
The museum wll have 2 floors dedicated to Ballgowns since 1950.
It will include superb made designs by couturier such as Victor Stiebel, Zandra Rhodes, Jonathan Saunders and Hussein Chalayan.
Also not forgetting a few evening wears designed by Catherine Walker and Worth London, to gowns fresh from the catwalk shows of Alexander McQueen, Erdem and more.
This event sponsored by Coutts & Co private bank, will celebrate the opening of the newly renovated Fashion Galleries.
Always good to see that a bank and not any bank, but the one used by The Queen, is involved in sponsorship and fashion.
In fact, a great association of 2 sectors which makes the perfect blend.
However, if fashion or ballgowns aren’t your thing, there are a lot of other wonderful exhibitions to see and discover under the V&A roof. Up to you to make a choice.
As the Diamond Jubilee celebrations aren’t not that far, it is (certainly) the right time to have such event in place.
