The V&A Teams Up With Coast


The Victoria and Albert Museum has collaborated with Coast to bring out a range of ballgown dresses which are now on sale in the high street branches.

In the collection there are six beautiful dresses reminiscent of the glamour and glitz of the 1950s.

The range was inspired by last year’s exhibition – Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 – and features both floor-length gowns and shorter knee-length dresses.

Suki Waterhouse was brought in to model the gowns and they look slightly magical, with piles of delicate tiered chiffon and art-deco style applique.

Lauren Sizeland, the V&A’s business development and licensing director, said: “The designs truly reflect the allure of ballgowns and grand occasion wear evoking the glamour and splendour of their inspiration,”

“These gowns will give the opportunity for customers to indulge in a little piece of fashion history.”

However, although they look spectacular they come with a starting price of £550 so won’t be in everyone’s price range.
