Victoria and Albert Museum: Fashion and Style Gallery

The fashion collection gallery at the V&A covers all styles of clothing from the last five hundred years, the museum website describes it as "the largest and most comprehensive collection of dress in the world".

I would have liked to spend a bit more time here, but you really need more than an afternoon to see the whole museum as it is sprawling and there are four floors.  Plus the boys took one look at all the clothing and shoes and started to at as if I was taking them through a torture cell.  They managed to moan at me the whole way through the gallery until we emerged at the end.

The collection is a fascinating gallery of ball gowns, corsets, party dresses and iconic fashion from every decade in the last 100 years.  The dresses from the early 1900's especially were lovely.
