The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014 exhibition at the V&A

ITALY-TAYLOR-BIO

Dive into seven decades of Italian fashion at The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014 exhibition held at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. With over 100 exhibition pieces by, to name a few, Prada, Fendi, Pucci, Valentino, Missoni, Giorgio Armani, Simonetta and Dolce & Gabbana, the story of Italian fashion is told.

As a phoenix, Italian fashion rose from its ashes. From its rise in the 1950s and the ’60s where hollywood stars like Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor acted like ambassadors of the Italian fashion houses to the ’70s where designers like Giorgio Armani and Gianni Versace made a name for themselves and the present day you’ll get a glimpse of Italian’s contribution to the world of fashion.

Book yourself a ticket and immerse yourself in the world of fashion.
