Mark your calendars for 19th May 2012 when the Victoria & Albert Museum debuts an entire exhibition to British Glamour ballgowns. There will be over 60 ballgowns from 1950 to the present day on display, including a range of beautiful ballgowns, red carpet evening gowns and catwalk showstoppers.

As such great designers, such as Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen, will be present there is sure to be an amazing collection of dresses to see, covering more than 60 years of a tradition that continues to flourish.

Displayed over two floors,  couture ballgowns and specially made designs for social events, royal state occasions, debutante balls will also be on display. Tour de force eveningwear from the V&A’s vast collection by designers such as Norman Hartnell, Victor Stiebel, Zandra Rhodes, Catherine Walker, Jonathan Saunders and Hussein Chalayan will be on show, as well as dresses fresh from the catwalk shows of Alexander McQueen, Giles, Erdem, Roksanda Illincic, Mark Fast and Jenny Packham.
