Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950

The fashion gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum has been revamped and will be opening with the exhibition Ballgowns: Sixty Years of British Glamour. Events such as the recent Royal Wedding prove how a nation can become fixated on one item; a dress. This event will be showcasing and celebrating some famous ball gowns worn by celebrities including Princess Diana, Kate Moss and Elizabeth Hurley over the past sixty years. With designers Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Gareth Pugh all having their creations displayed, this will be both a revival of fashion history and the opportunity to see these fashion masterpieces up close and personal.

 

About Victoria and Albert (V & A) Museum

The Victoria and Albert Museum (or V & A as everyone calls it) was originally founded in 1852 to inspire and educate British designers and manufacturers. Today it houses over 4 million items spanning centuries and hundreds of cultures. The stunning collection covers European, Indian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Islamic artefacts ranging from ceramics, glass, metalwork and sculpture to costume, armour, weaponry and furniture.
