Victoria&Albert Museum, London

To be able to visit the Victoria and Albert Museum was so impressive at my recent England trip. I wanted to share some photos of the gorgeous embroideries, garments covering the periods of 1600- 1990...


Glad that damage is not so big on the walls of the museum



To see a collection of the famous Turkish designer Rifat Ozbek was a surprise for me.


These creations are today's famous designers'; Armani, Valentino and Moschino

An evening dress of Lady Di, "The Princess of the hearts".

Pincushions and purses from 1600's










A wonderful bride's dress from 1600
The jacket of wealthy English woman Margaret Laton from 1620

























Shoes and slipper from 1600's
