Fall down the rabbit hole at the magical Alice-themed exhibition by the V&A

To mark the 150th anniversary of Lewis Caroll’s cherished children’s story Alice in Wonderland, the V&A Museum of Childhood explores the literary heroine’s influence on the world’s celebrated designers, stylists and photographers with an exhibition titled The Alice Look.

We see how her style has been interpreted over the years with a curation of rare garments, photographs and illustrations as well as a brand new commission by Roksanda Illincic pattern-cutter Josie Smith. The show also includes images from the infamous Annie Leibovitz Wonderland-themed Vogue spread and a selection of Alice-inspired Vivienne Westwood designs.

From 2 May - 1 November 2015
