A few weeks ago, my friend and I visited the V&A Museum to view the Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion exhibition. The exhibition features a selection of vintage clothing from Spanish designer, Cristóbal Balenciaga, as well as more contemporary pieces by his successors. I went mainly for the vintage pieces but was impressed with the exhibition on the whole. I did not know much about Balenciaga prior to our visit except for his famous balloon-shaped evening dresses.
It was very difficult to take good photos with so much glare from all the glass cases and reflections of other viewers. So it’s best to see the dresses in person to admire the details! The exhibition is on until 18 February 2018.
Opening times: Mon-Sun 10-17:30 (until 21:30 on Friday).
