Top 5 fashion & art exhibitions to see in London this summer

1. Glamour of Italian Fashion (5 April to 27 July 2014) at V&A museum

A look at Italian fashion from the end of Second World War till today.  The exhibition will be looking at both womenswear & meanswear, the fabrics, the techniques, and of course the major designers that have contributed the biggest role in shaping Italian glamour. There will be display of designs from Pucci, Valentino, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Prada, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and so on. This list alone should make you want to swipe your credit card and book a ticket.
Entry price: £13.50 per adult. Discounts for students

2. Henri Matisse- The Cutouts (17th April to 7th September 2014) at Tate Modern

Slightly more pricey but looking forward to seeing Matisse`s final work pieces. This is a very rare opportunity to see such a huge amount of his work before it goes back to the private owners around the world. Following London, the exhibition will also be showing in New York.
Entry price: £14.50 per adult.

3. Designs of the Year 2014 (26th March to 25th August 2014) at Design Museum

Quirky, innovative, cutting edge designs from the world of architecture, design, fashion, furniture, graphics, and so on. You will see here big names in the world of design such as Miuccia Prada along small startups and students projects. One of the exhibitions I`m looking forward the most.
Entry price: £13.88 per adult.

4. The fashion world of Jean Paul Gaultier (9 April to 25th August 2014) at Barbican Centre
