Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear, is the largest exhibition of its kind with over 200 pieces of underfrom the 18th century to present day on display. The exhibition, arranged in themes, explores the intimate relationship between underwear and fashion and its role in moulding the body to a fashionable ideal, with cut, fit, fabric and decoration revealing issues of gender, sex and morality.



Underwear worn by the likes of Queen Victoria’s mother, Dita Von Teese, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Moss, and some designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney and Paul Smith, will be on show.


“I can not wait to go to London to see the exhibition live. This is a big step forward for everyone who has taken part in this project, since over 500,000 people will visit the exhibition and I am sure that there will be both positive and negative critics because that is how we as people are,” said Ema,



Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear is open from 16 April 2016 to 12 March 2017 at the Victoria and Albert Museum London
