I visited the Victoria and Albert Museum in London today. They have recently opened there newly refurbished Fashion gallery with a beautiful exhibition on ballgowns. There are some stunning dresses not only from the 50's and 60's but contemporary examples as well, all using a range of techniques from embroidery to printed latex. It's really interesting seeing how all though the fashions may change with each decade the extravagance and beauty of each gown still remains. Oh how i wish to go to a ball!
