The Golden Age of Couture
04 November 07
I went to this exhibition at the V&A ages ago and completely forgot to blog about it until now. I went on a friday which was an experience in itself, I had no idea the V&A have a dj and a wine bar in the main entrance on friday evenings!
I would like to have a tiny moan about not being allowed to takes photos inside though. Such a ridiculous rule. Ban flash, don't ban photography all together. I fell in love with an amazing Balenciaga cocktail dress which I couldn't find a picture of anywhere. In the end I just drew the damn thing!
I don't think I did it justice really!
The dolls were the best bit though, the tiny couture outfit replicas were incredible.

The Golden Age of Couture at the V&A is on until the 6th of january and you should definitely check it out if you can. I liked it a lot.
