They don’t call the Victoria & Albert Museum the world’s leading museum of art and design for nothing. Its seven floors are full to the brim with original paintings, posters, jewellery, ceramics, sculptures, textiles and more, with the permanent collection numbering more than 2.8 million objects. The V&A has the largest fashion collection in the world, so it’s not surprising that the museum is known for its fashion exhibitions, having hosted blockbuster shows on Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, menswear, African fashion, kimonos and Balenciaga.
