One thing that I always make sure to do whenever I'm in London is to visit the Victoria & Albert Museum. And this time I had the chance to visit two exhibitions that were held at V&A. The first one is titled Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970–1990 which explores and documents lifestyle, architecture, and culture in the past two decades. Think Grace Jones's outfits, David Byrne's famous big suit, architecture from the late seventies, weird and creative looking teapots, Chanel suits made in the 80's, and more. Unfortunately, photography was prohibited so I only managed to take one photo of the exhibition. However, I was allowed to take photos from the Postmodernism shop which you will find below.
I also visited an exhibition titled The Power of Making, which celebrates the role of making and crafting in our lives by presenting an eclectic selection of over 100 exquisitely crafted objects (also photography was prohibited but I managed to snap a few photos). Among the things I have found was a headpiece shaped as lips and covered in blonde hair, as seen worn by Lady Gaga of course. Scroll down for more...
