Alice Look exhibition at V and A Museum

Date Posted: 02/04/2015

The Alice Look exhibition will be coming to the V and A Museum of Childhood to mark the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

The exhibition will showcase garments, photographs, rare editions and illustrations to show Alice as both a follower of fashion and a trendsetter.

The Alice Look will show how Alice has always embraced contemporary style and convey how she has strongly influenced contemporary fashion and inspired designers and stylists worldwide.

The display will culminate with a new commission by Josie Smith, pattern-cutter for Roksanda, who will make fashion out of fiction, producing a 3D version of Alice’s Wonderland outfit using fabric printed with text from the book.

The Alice Look runs from 2nd May until 1st November 2015 and is a free display.
