Victoria and Albert Museum hosts a beautiful visual trip to Italian glamour and fashion. Under the title "The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014,", Italian style is honoured.

A short passing through 100 pieces on display through the post war fashion to modern days. The exhibition begins with a black and white image from 1946 in Florence filled with glamour and style, an eternal style we may see from which nowadays designer take their inspiration. The visual road ends into the opulent style of modern Italy with a beautiful white gown from Gucci collection from 2004.

The eyes are delighted with an entire range of furs, cashmere, tweeds, knitwear, jewelry. An entire industry that Italy has developped during the years and every part of the country has a corner that is known for its fabrics. Let”s think of Como for the silk, Tuscany for the leather. And we all know the quality of Italian leather!

Under the Bulgari sponsorship, the event highlights Italy”s importance in fashion through the years. 

"Italy was at the forefront of convincing the elite consumer to buy ready-to-wear fashion, mostly because the Italian factories were so skilled at making it," Sonnet Stanfill declared, curator at the V&A. 

Italian designers are so well-known in the entire world. A great momentum to honor their creations was really expected. Important names like Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Miuccia Prada, Valentino, Pitti, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and many other are a few to mention in such a glamorous retrospective show.

The show runs till July 27 leaving enought time to see the glamour of the Italian designers in one place.
