I wanted to show you one of the most amazing excibitions I have attended in a while. As a freashly new mamber of the V&A membership ( student version ofcourse ) I could not wait to visit their newly renovated Fashion Gallerires and their new exhibition of beautiful ballgowns, red carpet evening dresses and catwalk showstoppers, opened in the centre of it  Displayed over two floors,Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 feature's more than sixty designs for social events such as private parties, royal balls, state occasions and opening nights..
