From stunning botanical embroidery to earrings made from birds of paradise, the relationship between nature and fashion is complex and often controversial. This exhibition will take you on a journey through centuries of fashion that have drawn inspiration from, and plundered the natural world – through to the contemporary innovators who are directly addressing the issues caused by the industry.
It’s about the future of fashion – and the planet.
It’s a well-rounded, candid insight into the complex relationship between fashion and nature.
By looking at the wider issue of environmentalism, this show will appeal to more than just the fashionistas and we get a stronger and more nuanced exhibition because of it.
This V&A show will change the way you think about fashion forever.
This is the V&A doing what the V&A does best: staging world-class exhibitions of immaculately preserved and presented fashion.
Inspiring V&A show determined to incite change.
