Petticoats to Paparazzi: A Fashionable Hunt at the V&A


Saturday 18 November | 2.30pm - 4.30pm | V&A


Take a jaunt through history as we explore the wonderful fashion galleries at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Using a bespoke booklet, exquisitely handcrafted for our younger audiences, this treasure hunt will look at the evolution of British fashion from the 17th century through to today.  As we go through the collection, we'll look at the shapes, fabrics, colours and details of clothes while our fashion expert explains the social, economic and international context in which the fashion of the day came to prominence.

This is a perfect tour for 8-12 year old girls and would make a wonderful mother and daughter outing, or a great gift for a goddaughter or niece.

Children must be accompanied by an adult

Meet in the lobby of the V&A

A huge thanks from us for helping make last night’s event so special. We are getting such positive feedback from all of the clients – some of the most glowing I’ve ever received. I was really impressed with everything you guys did so please pass on my thanks to your team as well for making it such a success.

My son Charlie and I were taken round the National Gallery by Rose Balston, and in three brief hours, we were inspired to levels of wonder. Rose has the gift of allowing you to discover things in the paintings that you would never have noticed before…I’d strongly recommend you join an Art History UK tour.
