FASHION FIELD TRIP AT THE V&A MUSEUM



The Victoria & Albert Museum is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful museums I have ever ever seen. It is also one of the biggest museums. You can practically spend the entire day there. It is so enormous you can literally get lost inside. When I found out that they have a permanent fashion exhibition I made sure to squeeze it in my busy London schedule. Good thing I checked it out because it turned out to be a really fantastic exhibition. It showcased the works of various fashion geniuses like Yohji Yamamoto, Halston, Prada, Issey Miyake, Vivienne Westwood, Rei Kawakubo, etc. They even had the Alexander McQueen S/S 2010 snake-skin print dress that everybody loves on display! And guess what? The entrance to this magnificent museum is free except for a few of the special exhibitions like the Grace Kelly Style Icon display wherein they charge 6 quids. So make sure to check out the Victoria & Albert Museum if ever you're in London. Believe me you will love it!

A sea of shoes from primitive to sexy Louboutins...



Vintage Longchamp anyone?

Inspired by Madonna's Blonde Ambition, non?



Love love love this dress..chic, non? My Mom would love this!!!





I totally heart the simplistic sensibility of this piece. The asymmetrical combo of the top and trousers is plain genius!



Look at that amazing fabric


Presenting....



La McQueen is really a genius. Look at how amazing the print is. I wish I was able to examine the fabric closely...




Grace Kelly is absolutely one of the Style Icons of the century.


Here's my obligatory picture standing in front of the Grace Kelly exhibit...How cheesy!!!
