British Designs

Today was a great day to explore past British fashions from the mid-1900s onwards at the Victoria & Albert Museum in South Kenningston, London. Famous works produced by Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood were to be observed. Being very sneaky, I was able to take pictures of the displays though I got told twice that cameras were not allowed. Many idols of the time included The Beatles, David Bowie and Bon Jovi of whom played a role in changing fashion with their patch leather jackets, fringe, and even make-up..! A great exhibition to visit for all interested in 'British Design - 1948-2012'!
