British Design Exhibition

At the moment there are quite a lot of exhibitions themed around Britishness. Obviuosly to tie in with the upcoming Olympics. One of the best of these is the V&A's exhibition, British Design 1948–2012: Innovation in the Modern Age, celebrates the best of British post-war art and design from the 1948 ‘Austerity Games' to the present day. Over 300 British design objects highlight significant moments in the history of British design and how the country continues to nurture artistic talent and be a world leader in creativity and design.

My favourite pieces in the show were the punk wear from Vivienne Westwood. The Hussein Chalayan light dress. Damien Hirst's pharmacy restaurant. Also the British green, yellow and white road signage.I think it is great that the theme has been taken through to the main entrance and shop too. With pillars surrounded in iconic British prints, mainly from the fifties era.
