The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945 – 2014 at the V&A


The V&A’s major new Summer 2014 exhibition looks at the world of Italian fashion in “The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945 – 2014”.

It promises to be a comprehensive look at Italian Fashion from the end of the Second World War to the present day, exploring all of the key fashion figures who have contributed to shaping Italy’s reputation for quality and style.

Including both women’s and menswear, the show goes from the ‘Sala Bianca’ catwalk shows held in Florence in the 1950s, to the Hollywood films location in Italy during the Fifties and Sixties when stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor became style ambassadors for Italian fashion, right up to the present day.

Over 100 ensembles and accessories will be on display from Italian fashion houses including Simonetta, Pucci, Sorelle Fontana, Valentino, Gucci, Missoni, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Prada and Versace.
