Yesterday Accessories & Shopping Editor Elodie, Beauty Editor Sarah S and Features Editor Sarah F spent the afternoon at the V&A, admiring some spectacular gowns at the museum’s latest Fashion in Motion event.
This particular presentation paid homage to the work of one of Aesthetic HQ’s favourite designers- the amazing Jenny Packham- whose beautifully ornate creations have become synonymous with contemporary elegance and unapologetic glamour.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the eponymous label, this was the perfect opportunity to see some of Jenny’s incredible designs spring into vivid life on the catwalk.
Although there’s no doubt that a Jenny Packham dress photographs beautifully and is perfect for fashion editorials, seeing each piece firsthand was a real treat, and we were all amazed at just how intricate the design work is. If you didn’t make it along to yesterday’s event then be sure to have a look at the video -we’ve already had a few repeat viewings and are rapidly drawing up a wishlist!
