Victoria and Albert Museum

After my culinary adventures, it's time for some culture! We were lucky enough that the V&A museum was just a short-ish walk away from the hotel so we dedicated an entire morning to it. And let me tell you, a morning isn't nearly enough! The museum is huge, and for that we only visited two galleries, Fashion and Theatre & Performance. I took a lot of photos but the lighting was dim so I had to choose the best. First, Fashion.

Just a small selection of the clothes in the gallery. We saw some amazing gowns, menswear, underwear, sportwear, you name it. The place was busy with fashion students sketching dress details. Very inspiring!

There were a few blown-up images on the walls, from various photoshoots. I'm sure you all recognised Twiggy!

Shoes, shoes, shoes! Seriously, who could resist?

Yay for silliness! Next up, Theatre and Performance gallery.

Pete Townshend (Who) smashed this guitar.

Kylie Minogue's dressing room.

V&A's beautiful garden.

And that concludes our virtual tour!

Lovely tour! The fashion is amazing... my most favorite being the last dress. It looks familiar? From a film maybe?

Oh girls, I want to go again too! :)

Gabbi, the last dress is quite recent, it's a Chloe dress so maybe that's why it looks familiar. :)
