Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear at the V&A

  • Date
  • Time

Co-curated by London College of Fashion, UAL’s Chair in Fashion Curation Professor Claire Wilcox and opening 19 March until 6 November 2022, Masculinities will be the first major V&A exhibition to celebrate the power, artistry and diversity of masculine attire and appearance. The show will trace how menswear has been fashioned and refashioned over the centuries, and how designers, tailors and artists, and their clients and sitters, have constructed and performed masculinity, and unpicked it at the seams. 

Contemporary looks by legendary designers and rising stars will be displayed alongside historical treasures from the V&A’s collections and landmark loans: classical sculptures, Renaissance paintings, iconic photographs, and powerful film and performance. Outfits worn by familiar faces will be interspersed throughout, from Harry Styles, Billy Porter and Sam Smith, to David Bowie and Marlene Dietrich.  

Ticket prices start from £8.50.
