A day at the V&A

The day that i decided to go to the V&A i was recovering out of a really bad virus :( so i really needed some form of inspiration in my life, and that's how i headed  to the incredible and inspiring V&A (Victoria and Albert) museum of art and design. There was a great exhibition called Fashion,don't know if it's still on but if it's still on, i highly reccomend it,  and it's for free! It's reaaaaaally good , one can see clothes back from the 1850's up until now...i'm posting a selection of my favourite inspiring outfits, cause unfortunately they were too many to post all , i have also left a small part out, that i will post some other day and it's related to SHOES. So i took some photos to share with you.!

  1. Thank you for sharing this. Of course my favorites would be the Dolce suit, and then the C. Balenciaga, Cardin, and Mugler trio.
