The Glamour of Italian FashionSince the Second World War, Italian designers have become synonymous with glamour: Prada, Gucci, Armani, Versace... the names alone scream swagger, money, luxury and style. But there is more to Italian fashion than jet-set glitz - its success has been built on values such as craftsmanship, fine materials, innovation and expert tailoring. This V&A exhibition offers the chance to appreciate the art of the designers and the makers, without running the gauntlet of Bond Street doormen, displaying 100 ensembles, both menswear and womenswear, from the museum's collection. Pieces from leading Italian fashion houses are set beside lesser-known mid-century designers and emerging talent and put in context through period film and fashion photography.

About Victoria and Albert (V & A) Museum

The Victoria and Albert Museum (or V & A as everyone calls it) was originally founded in 1852 to inspire and educate British designers and manufacturers. Today it houses over 4 million items spanning centuries and hundreds of cultures. The stunning collection covers European, Indian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Islamic artefacts ranging from ceramics, glass, metalwork and sculpture to costume, armour, weaponry and furniture.
