Christmas Tree Installation by Jasper Conran

V&A Christmas tree, by Jasper Conran, December 2006

V&A Christmas tree, designed by Jasper Conran, December 2006

For Christmas 2006, the V&A commissioned British fashion and homeware designer Jasper Conran to design the Museum's fourth Christmas Tree.

The six-metre high tree in the V&A's Grand Entrance was enchanting, decorated with 1000 crystal drops generously donated by Waterford Crystal and lit with emerald and aquamarine lights. Clear screens etched with Jasper Conran's distinctive Chinoiserie motifs surrounded the tree. The Chinoiserie design used in the 'Jasper Conran at Wedgwood' fine bone china range was a key inspiration for the tree.

'I have always been inspired by the incredible collections at the V&A. I am delighted to be creating the V&A's Christmas tree this year and I hope it inspires and delights in the same way the collections do.'
Jasper Conran 

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
