In case you are traveling to London this year, looks like an interesting exhibit at the V&A on underwear. Dates are April 2016 to March 2017.
Thank you, Pam! The V&A is one of my favorites anywhere and as luck would have it, I will be in London next September. Looks like a wonderful and interesting exhibit!
I'm excited because there was a similar exhibit in 2007 that I missed out on, and I just bought my plane tickets for September two days ago!
Fun! We will be there in May and will be sure to go. We skipped the "Shoes" special exhibit last September but do not want to miss this!
Maybe I can find a nice corset in the museum shop.
Victoria's underwear? Albert's? Skirts on the piano legs? I can't wait; my knickers are in a knot -- oh, what's the dress code?
Thank you, Pam! Looks like a great exhibit!
I'm glad it sounds good to you all because I thought it sounded great!
I also missed the shoe exhibit...ran out of time or actually I did not plan well so couldn't fit it in. Last fall I also missed the Magna Carta exhibit by days and it would have been easy to go a little earlier to catch it.
This year I'm trying to get a handle on special things that are happening so I can work in the interesting things!
I wonder if it's likely to get a big crowd on opening weekend: that's when I'll be there.
I love that it's partially sponsored by Agent Provocateur!
I love the clothing section at the V&A.
Various items of Queen Victoria's underwear are on display in Kensington Palace. If you like that sort of thing,
Sounds neat. Too bad it it opens after the Global No Pants Subway Ride on 10 January that I read about on this forum. A missed opportunity for discounted V&A/Tube tickets to participating customers? Maybe next year. Thanks for a fun post.
OK, so I'll work in Kensington Palace and the V&A and make this a specialty tour. I wonder if the British Museum has mummy unders.
