British by Design 1948-2012


Ballgowns: British Glamour since 1950

at the V&A.

British by Design was like watching your life flash by - it starts with Coventry Cathedral (John Piper & Graham Sutherland though no Britten) moves into the Festival of Britain (but the Millennium Dome is missing for 2000: now there's a surprise) and onto the mini, punk rock, LP covers, Mary Quant and on and on to Concorde, the e-type and the Olympics (1948 is also included). It's an absolute gem.

Ballgowns was wonderful and the under the radar message was how far and how fast Britain has become a more relaxed and more democratic society. The gowns are are at times amusing, sensuous and beautiful......This exhibition in the new stunning gallery is wonderfully curated.
