Let’s Throw A Ball For British Gowns
So what modern day princess wouldn##Q##t love this exhibition?
Started May 19th this year, London opened up a stunning exhibition named Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950. Every girly-girl always dreams of being dressed up in lavish ballgowns, so this would definitely be heaven.
“Eveningwear from the V&A’s vast collection, by designers including Victor Stiebel, Zandra Rhodes, Jonathan Saunders and Hussein Chalayan, will be on show alongside dresses fresh from the catwalk shows of Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon, Erdem and Jenny Packham.”
The gorgeous dresses are displayed over two floors and range from different British designers mixed the old with the new. There are ballgowns that have come straight off the runway, and then there are ballgowns that have been worn by some of the most prestigious women in the world, including royalty and celebrities.
