Undressed At The V&A

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is one of my faves.  Firstly because they have the most beautiful grounds where you can sit and enjoy lunch or a peaceful coffee but also because they host such fabulous and well put together exhibitions.  I got to see the Alexander McQueen exhibition here (see this post) which was one of my all time favourites.





This time around I was here to see the latest fashion exhibition, Undressed.  Undressed is all about underwear through the ages and how it has evolved.  It sounds rather strange but it's actually quite fascinating to see, especially the corsets!  I honestly don't know how the women breathed in those.





The exhibition is split onto two levels with the downstairs showcasing the underwear and the upstairs showcasing more outerwear such as the iconic see through maxi dress worn by Kate Moss in 1993.  Keeping with the corset theme they had a beautiful one worn by Dita von Tease.






It's a really great and fascinating exhibition that I would highly recommend and encourage you to see.  You can buy tickets online here for £12 and it's open until March 2017.

Will you be taking a visit?

  1. Haha those corsets look painful to wear. Glad things have changed for the better. :]
