Today, the V&A's much anticipated Italian fashion exhibition opens to the public.
"The Glamour of Italian Fashion" charts the transformation of Italy's style industry from post World War II to the present day, and covers both womenswear and menswear.
There will be over 100 exhibits on display from some of the country's leading fashion houses, including Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Prada, many of which have not been seen in Britain before.
The exhibition runs until 27th July, 2014, and to learn more about it simply click here
