There are countless reasons why London is one of the best cities in the world, one of them being the diversity of museums there, and the different exhibitions that these museums offer. The latest exhibition that grabbed my attention was one called “Ballgowns: British Glamour since 1950” at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The exhibition featured gowns spanning the last 60 years including designs from Alexander McQueen, Erdem, Gareth Pugh and Stella McCartney. Unfortunately, no cameras were allowed so the only taste I can give you from the breath-taking gowns are the pictures taken from the official exhibition book at the end of this post.
The rest of the photos are from the general fashion section of the museum. If you happen to be in London make sure you do visit the ballgown exhibition -open until the 6th of January. Trust me, by the time you leave the room you will be speechless!
