Over a glass of wine or soft drink, enjoy an introductory talk on the subject of the V&A exhibition Wedding Dresses 1775-2014.  This exhibition will trace the development of the fashionable white wedding dress and its treatment by key fashion designers such as Charles Frederick Worth, Norman Hartnell, Charles James, John Galliano, Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood and Vera Wang offering a panorama of fashion over the last two centuries. Following the talk, which will be delivered by assistant curator Susanna Cordner, you will go for a visit to the exhibition.

19.30-Assistant curator Susanna Cordner will introduce the exhibition

20.15-Visit to Wedding Dresses[masked] (The museum closes at 22.00)

We will be based in seminar room 1, in the new learning centre, V&A. The closest entrance is on Exhibition Road (either tunnel from South Kensington tube or street level). You go straight ahead as you enter into the sculpture gallery and walk to the end of the gallery where you will come to a staircase (opposite the bookshop). Go up the stairs and turn right and walk to the end of the corridor. Turn left into Europe and America gallery and walk to the end and you will arrive in the learning centre where either myself or Marisa, our V&A host, will be there to greet you (please note that this entrance has stairs. If anyone needs step free access please contact Marisa on [masked] and she can send on directions or meet you on the evening).

    Same old, same old ... so sorry and to be so late in cancelling. I hope someone else can have the experience.
    Was looking like a go - then life went on a slamming spree and chose me for practice. Bummer right.
    I hope everyone has a lovely one!

      The V&A events tend to mostly be Fridays as that is their late night. Saturday stuff does come up sometimes though :)
