The V&A, London.

A selection of my favourites from the V&A fashion gallery. The dresses are from the 'Early Designers' theme ranging from 1850's to 1930's.

I love the Victorian-esque large bustles and all the layers that the dresses are made up of (particularly the skirt of the 1830'3 wedding dress) I find the complexity of the dresses intriguing, and by looking at them you just know they aren't going to be the most comfortable of outfits. The embroidary on the final dress is beautiful. I like how clean cut and immaculate they look,and equally how over the top they are.
They definitely appeal to my love for anything old & victorian.
