The WA Museum is currently hosting an exhibition all the way from London’s Victoria & Albert Museum – wedding dresses! Lingerie! Hats! Shoes! See website. From the website:
Relive 200 years of romance and glamour with this dramatic collection of wedding fashion from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
This exhibition traces the development of the fashionable white wedding dress and shows how both brides and designers have stamped their own style on tradition. It considers the influence of the wedding industry, the effect of the increasing media focus on wedding fashions, and the excitement generated by society and celebrity weddings.
The exhibition features 65 wedding outfits and accessories of both brides and bridegrooms. The range of accessories includes veils, hats, shoes, wreaths, and lingerie.
Interested in going along and checking it out? Well, the exhibition is on display until 24 March 2013. But, a group from the sewing club will be heading along on Sunday, January 6 at 1pm. Visit MeetUp to RSVP if you want to join us!
Just for the record, 98% of the reason I’m going along is to see Gwen Stefani’s John Galliano-designed wedding dress (below)!!
