Hi guys! 
This is just a two minute video about my visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum to look at "The Glamour of Italian fashion" exhibition. 
I wasn't allowed to film inside the exhibition and show you the amazing collection from 1945 to present day. 
The impact that Italian fashion has had on the Fashion industry all the way to Hollywood has been tremendous. 
Do any of you remember the Versace Safety-pin dress that Elizabeth Hurly wore to the 'four weddings and a funeral' premier? She accompanied then boyfriend, Hugh Grant to the movie of the year in1994. That dress propelled her into SUPER STARDOM! 
This is the kind of impact Italian fashion had.on a global scale :)

 Richard Burton once said of his then wife, (Elizabeth Taylor) that the only Italian she knew was Bvgalri.
Her diamond collection was sensational to say the least.
