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…
The colour! The fabulous vibrant simply stunning magenta colour! ❤
Here is the back of the gown, from the V & A website
Gorgeous Edwardian style
Stunning lace work
Displaying the inside of the jacket to show the tailoring. Props to the V & A.

Love the gathers – dramatic!
This fabric is absolutely stunning, very celestial looking. Mantua dress.
