The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957

Comments Off on The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957 16 March 2007

There’s a new fashion exhibit coming to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in September that’s all about the golden age of modern fashion: 1947-1957, the ten year span when fashion went from war utilitarian to post-war lushness. While it seems that the exhibit will feature mostly Dior pieces, Givenchy’s pieces will be on display. Specifically, a replica of the bright blue cape Audrey Hepburn wore in Funny Face will be shown, along with fashion portraits by Cecil Beaton and Richard Avedon (and perhaps some Audrey portraits?). You can read more about the exhibit and the designers that will be featured here, and The Independent has another article that goes more into fashion in general during that period.

Lucky London, they’re having all the Audrey luck lately!
