Undressed at the V&A

Visiting Undressed was key to my design development, to understate the concise history of the evolution of underwear and how under garment shapes influenced the development of the swimwear we see today. Although the exhibition did not excite me as I had hoped, it was interested to view the garments in close up detail i.e. The structure of the corsets or the finishing technique applied. Its amazing how far underwear design has come in the last 100 years.It does make you wonder if the designs from the early 1900’s would ever become popular fashion again, as trends come around in cycles, like currently we have had the occurrence of the waist trainer which is a simplified version of the corset.
