England: Fashion and Textiles Part 2: The V & A

So the V & A’s costume collection is so amazing, it gets it’s own post! I do apologise if the photos are a bit iffy – you know how it is with conservation and display of garments – always dimly lit, behind glass, etc. etc. Not exactly ideal for photography.

Just a little bit fabulous...
