A Brief History of Lingerie at The V&A Museum
I took a trip to old London Town recently to visit one of my favourite places; The Victoria and Albert Museum. Now as much as I love to while away the hours wondering aimlessly through this beautiful building, I had come for a purpose. I came to see the Undressed Exhibition I had heard so much about.
The exhibition itself covers two floors, and I allowed myself an hour and a half to cover the whole lot. Tickets are £12.00 and you can purchase them here - Undressed at The V & A
Image Disclaimer: You aren't 'supposed' to take pictures of the exhibition, so naturally I broke the rules :) below are a few of mine - Enjoy!
