the beauty of the Ball Gown

a Ball Gown is worn only at the most formal occasions, according to the rules of etiquette. it is traditionally a full-skirted gown reaching at least to the ankles, made of luxurious fabric, delicately and exotically trimmed. 

Ball Gown by Alexander McQueen 

on the 19 May 2012, the Victoria and Alfred Museum will be hosting one of THE most amazing exhibitions yet. well, for the fashion industry (and history) it will be spectacular, spectacular.

British Glamour since the 1950's will be represented to pay homage to the art of the Ball Gown design by some of Britain's most iconic designers. There will more than 60 glamorous creations worn by royalty, socialites and celebrities. on display there will be breath taking designs by McQueen, Jenny Packham, Giles Deacon and Hussein Chalayan, just to name a few.  

the exhibition will come to a close on 6 January 2012. do not miss out.
