Undressed At The V&A

Posted by David Moore on

Paulette our Creative Director has ventured down to the V&A in London this weekend to take a look around 'Undressed' - A Brief History of Underwear.

We'll let you know more when she gets back into the office on Monday, in the meantime here's a little more information for anyone who's also interested in paying a visit -

Saturday 16 April 2016 – Sunday 12 March 2017

Discover the evolution of underwear design from the 18th-century to the present day.

'A Brief History of Underwear' features over 200 examples of underwear for men and women, highlighting the enduring themes of innovation and luxury. From the custom made, such as a rare example of home-made ‘stays’ worn by a working woman in England in the 18th-century, to pieces by current designers including Stella McCartney, Rigby & Peller and Paul Smith, the exhibition explores the relationship between underwear & fashion. It covers notions of the ideal body, and the ways that cut, fit, fabric and decoration can reveal issues of gender, sex and morality.
