Would you like to see how the glamour of Italian fashion has developed since the end of the Second World War? The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014 Exhibition is now on at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The Italian Fashion Exhibition features key Italian fashion designers and companies, highlighting styles from both women’s and menswear, truly escorting you back through the years. Expect to be seeing approximately 100 outfits and accessories from the best Italian fashion houses including Valentino, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Prada and Versace just to name a few.
Through the V&A exhibition you will learn about how fashion helped Italy rejuvenate the country after the destruction of the Second World War.
