Ballgowns:”British Glamour Since 1950”!

Victor Edelstein,1986

Ball gowns,debutante balls and red-carpet dresses have remarkably evolved over the past years and this interesting phenomenon is being captured at the relevant Victoria and Albert Museum Exhibition. As stated by Sonnet Stanfill, co-curator of the exhibition: ” We aim to focus on British design in the year of the Olympics therefore it seemed normal to choose the best evening wear from British designers for display.”

We are talking,of course,of Alexander McQueen gowns,Stella Mc Cartney,Mario’s Schwab and less known but no less skilled Ralph and Russo designs. A ball gown is evocative,having a sense of ceremony and at the same time,provides the canvas for designers to experiment on cut and color.And of course,it is the way it is worn that makes the final impression lasting and the dress itself a sartorial legend in fashion timeline.And we all get fascinated by legends the details below.
