Last week I finally made it to the V&A to see their fabulous Wedding Dresses exhibition. Whether you’re after inspiration for your own Wedding Dress, or simply want to be nosy, it’s a real must-see. As women, the significance of the wedding dress is something we all feel, so rather than the usual museum hush, this show positively buzzed with excited chatter!
These are a few of my favorites but if you’ve seen the show, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Which dress were you just dying to try on?
Kate Moss’s Dress
John Galliano designed this stunning dress, embellished with hundreds of thousands of pearls and gold sequins.
The Red Dress
I love the glorious colour of this dress, but also the story. It was worn by electrical engineer Monica Maurice in June 1938. Clearly a lady ahead of her time!
Simple and Elegant
This one is my Mum’s favorite! Designed by Jasper Conran and worn by Lady Sarah Chatto in 1994. It’s all about the fabric!
The One With the Train
Designed by Normal Hartnell for Margaret Whigham’s society wedding in 1933. The 3.5m train would be amazing for making an entrance, though I imagine a little tricky for dancing in!
Wedding Dress 1775-2014 continues at the V&A until March 2015.
