The V&A’s forthcoming exhibition, opening on 5 April 2014 will be devoted to Italian fashion and will feature designs by Italy’s leading names including Valentino, Gucci and Prada.

“Italian fashion is a story of rags to riches almost, as the post-war country recovers and becomes a key place for manufacture, design and entrepreneurial risk taking that cuts right across businesses,” said curator Sonnet Stanfill. “This is the compelling story which we describe in the exhibition.”
