We thought we’d better take a moment to encourage you to go and visit the V&A’s brilliant Fashioned from Nature exhibition, which opened at the museum at the end of April.
From stunning botanical embroidery to earrings made from birds of paradise, the relationship between nature and fashion is complex and often controversial. Fashioned from Nature explores the garments, processes and designers, from 1600 to the present day, that have drawn inspiration from the natural world, plundered it, and, more recently, striven to conserve it . You can watch the trailer for the exhibition below:
Fashioned from Nature is on now until January 2019. More information/tickets can be found here.
