Teachers' Resource Fashion
The V&A has collected fashion and textiles since the mid 19th century. The collection now includes around a hundred thousand objects, from buttons and ballgowns to silks and lace.
The Fashion gallery (Room 40) shows European fashion, fabrics and accessories from 1750 to the present day. The emphasis is on progressive and influential design. The gallery is organised into displays that reflect key concepts in the collection, from Court and Country to Radical Fashion. It includes iconic designs by Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Mary Quant, Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen.
