Introducing the Fashioned from Nature Blog


Research Department
April 10, 2018

We’re excited to launch our blog for our upcoming exhibition Fashioned from Nature (opening 21 April 2018).  We’ll be taking you behind the scenes and reveal what goes into putting on a show of this scale.  You’ll be hearing from the people involved, from the curator, conservators, and designers, to the photographers, volunteers and artists. You’ll discover the stories of the star objects in the show, the exhibition designer’s concepts and the passion for recycled and upcycled garments of staff from across the V&A.  In our first post, we’ll introduce this topical exhibition that investigates the complex relationship between fashion and nature and how we can build a more sustainable fashion industry that works for everyone.
