London Day Trip Part 2

Here is the second instalment of my London V&A Fashion Exhibition tour.
I know quite a few of you have been looking forward to some more peeks at fashion history, so here you go:
'La Flute' Day Dress, Paul Poiret, 1924
Sorry for the spotty reflection, thats my dress. I love the cut on this dress, you just know that it will be flattering on any lady. The cuffs are great too.
Grace Kelly's dress by designer Maggy Rouff, 1959
Alexander McQueen, S/S 2010
Bruce Oldfield 1986. Real mink collar.
Is this not divine! I want a coatdress just like this please! So elegant and decedent.
Christian Lacroix 1996
Jean Desses, 1954
Some more for the stunning 1950's inspiration book! hehe!
Madeleine Vionnet, 1933.
Again this dress is totally decadent and stunning. You would have to be wealthy in the 30's to afford this dress. It is beautiful and I would so wear it.

Gabrielle Chanel 1932.
She may have become known for tailoring and her androgynous looks in the 1920's but in the 1930's she moved into more feminine looks. This dress has a low back and has 2 bow appliques, one on front and one on the lower back. It is beautiful and completely covered in sequins.
Jaques Heim 1959.
Another 1950's stunner, this time a plain and classic one. The silhouette is perfect though.
Yves Saint-Laurent 1979.
This has an almost 60's vibe with the blocks of colours.
Diana Princess of Wales Dress by Catherine Walker 1989

That's the end of the clothing tour ladies. But just one more fashion hit for you!
Manolo Blahnik 1996
Pretty!! lol!

Plus how amazing is this paper cutting.
'I Can't Forget' by Rob Ryan
And that piece of paper will cost you just £75, mad eh?

One more, briefer, London post to come.
