The Victoria and Albert Museum in London features, from 22nd September to 6th January 2008, an exhibition entirely dedicated to the fascinating world of Haute Couture.
The Golden Age of Couture begins its retrospective in 1947, when Mr Dior launched the 'New Look', and ends a decade later, featuring the work of Paris-based couturiers such as the aforementioned Cristian Dior, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Pierre Balmain and Hubert de Givenchy, and also of London-based Norman Hartnell and Hardy Amies.
Illustrated with period gowns and photography, this post-war fashion tribute is a must for those ( myself included ) who revel in the Hitchcock-heroine look of that era.
Don't forget to also visit The Art of Lee Miller, a photographic retrospective of the life of the once american Vogue model, Man Ray lover and muse, and acclaimed photographer.

V&A at Cromwell Road, South Kensington, London SW7
