Street Style: Chance meeting at the V&A...

There is currently a great collection on at the V&A museum (running from the 12th March- 10th July), which features the work of Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. His work is just beautiful and has a very fluid movement as it comes down the catwalk and the exhibition shows a large selection of both women and menswear over the last 10years. Sadly on this occasion at the V&A visitors weren’t allowed to sketch or take photos which was slightly disappointing. There was the most beautiful red pleated dress from his S/S collection of 2005 which was in homage to Madame Gres, really feminine and stunning (you can just see it in the image above). The exhibition is defiantly worth a visit though if you have an hour free in London.. plus students get in for £5 which was a bonus.

While at the collection I spotted this lovely fashion student, who kindly said I could take her photo for the blog. I really loved how she had put together the different terracotta colours and the sparkly gold beaded waistcoat, to make a plain dress a bit more interesting. With the vintage ankle boots and chain bag, the outfit looked effortlessly put together. What do you think? On this note...I really need to grow some confidence and ask people I photograph where they got their items from. I tend to stop people when they are in a rush, so I get the photo and go! Though I know you lot would like to see how they got their look. Next street style I will, promise!
