    Not only is it one of the most beautiful buildings in Britain, the V&A has just opened a newly refurbished fashion gallery. It’s breathtaking redesign, by 6a Architects, melds a modern mezzanine with the spectacular Edwardian domed gallery with its large alcoves, architectural columns and ornate mosaic flooring. So, so sumptuous – with amazing ambience and lighting – including images of ballgowns projected onto the magnificent curved alcoves.

    The new Ballgowns exhibition celebrates its opening with glamorous frocks from 1950 to current day, including designers from Victor Edelstein and Hardy Amies to Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. Not to be missed.
