Gabrielle Chanel: Fashion Manifesto at V&A


Recommended Posts



Visited the Chanel exhibition at the V&A today. As someone who isn't that interested in fashion (but is a Friend of the V&A) I thought I ought to go. Beautifully curated - though very busy even on a Monday - its well worth going.  Be warned its the V&A's best selling exhibition so tickets may be at a premium!

An extraordinary array of dresses. I was totally bowled over by the complex simplicity of the designs, their obvious confort and timeless quality. You could imagine them inhabited by a body dancing (as indeed some were -the wonderfully wooly, state-of-the-art 1924 swimming costume for Le train bleu, for example). I missed the Bolshoi's Yuri Possokhov's Gabrielle Chanel and now regret it!  Would love to hear what others thought of both - exhibition and ballet!
