Friday Late at the V&A

Headed to the V&A for their monthly late night opening.

This months theme was British Design, to coincide with their current exhibition.

My friend Emily and I took part in the David David workshop where we were able to paint designs onto white clothing donated by American Apparel.

David Davids designs focus mainly on geometric patterns he explained…

We went for a bra and tshirt and were able to model them down the main staircase! didnt quite look like this…

We rewarded ourselves with delicious food from the V&A cafe!
