Abstract

This article was written initially to enlighten fashion design students about the recent exhibition entitled ‘The Golden Age of Couture’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. It demonstrates an obvious enthusiasm for fashion during the period 1947–57 and illustrates the social and cultural background to this period of fashion history. Most importantly it emphasises the importance and relevance of visiting exhibitions to the fashion professional, and how they can be used to inspire and inform contemporary fashion design
