This inctedible dress from 1868-9 is part of the Fashioned from Nature exhibition at @vamuseum running now until the 27th January 2019. The exhibition deals with, past and present, our relationship with nature in relation to the clothes we wear, the source of our clothes as well as "innovative new fabrics and dying processes. Over 5000 Jewel Beetle wings were used to decorate this dress made in 1868-9. There are over 15,000 known species of jewel beetles. The one used for this dress is Sternocera Aequisignata. Unlike many other animals used by us this jewel beetle is not an endangered species and is now "farmed". After a long larvae stage it lives for 3-4 weeks, dying suddenly after mateing. It's wings are then collected for sale. #myvam #fashionedfromnature #jewelbeetle #emeraldbeetle #ourimpactonnature #victoriaandalbertmuseum #consciousliving #perioddress #1800s #visitlondon #myvisittolondon #victoriandress #sternoceraaequisignata

Gloria here, with some more photos of the “Fashioned from Nature” exhibit at the @vamuseum. It was fascinating to see the underside of these stays, as it reveals much about their construction. And there was even a photograph (swipe to see) of an x-ray taken of the insides! Stays, Britain, 1780s, linen, silk, and baleen. (X-ray photo taken in 2016 by @nickveaseyxray.) #victoriaandalbertmuseum #victoriaandalbert #vamuseum #18thcentury #18thcenturycostume #18thcenturyfashion #historicalcostume #fashionedfromnature

We have just spent the morning checking up on the kids at the V&A Museum @vamuseum ❤️
There isn’t any natural light in this gallery so a lot of the planning went into designing the cork lamps that sit in the top of the vessels. It was definitely touch and go whether it was going to work but after a bit of TLC today we left very happy with how they are doing. The #fashionedfromnature exhibit is on until Feb 2019 so plenty of time for you to pop by and see the plants growing! 🌿
Thank you for everyone at the V&A involved in this for letting us loose in the gallery! And to @emmawatson !!!!!!! for letting us surround your gorgeous dress on show in the centre!!

LONDON, UK - The V&A museum is a perennial favorite in London. There’s a phenomenal exhibition called Fashioned from Nature that looks at the use of organic materials in clothing and accessories over the centuries. From dresses with beetle decoration to x-rays of whale bone corsets to Emma Watson’s Met Gala dress... it’s terrific and will make you think.

Have you been to see the Fashioned from Nature exhibition @vamuseum where one of my garments is currently on display? The dress has been made especially for the exhibition, and features a non-animal alternative to feather embellishment

@ethicalhedonistmagazine has put together a fascinating documentary with curator Edwina Ehrman discussing the exhibition which can be found on their page ☝🏻

Gloria here, sharing another piece from the @vamuseum exhibit “Fashioned from Nature.” The simple fabric of this coat contrasts with the fun tassels and large mother-of-pearl buttons. Man’s coat, Britain, 1770-79. #victoriaandalbertmuseum #victoriaandalbert #vamuseum #18thcentury #18thcenturycostume #18thcenturyfashion #historicalcostume #fashionedfromnature

Gloria here. While we were traveling in England recently, we were fortunate enough to see several costume exhibits. And of course we have photos to share! I’m starting with the first exhibit we saw, the excellent “Fashioned from Nature” at the @vamuseum. This exhibit showcases garments that are either made from interesting natural materials or have designs inspired by natural elements. This stunning gown is a combination of both. The silk fabric is woven in a beautiful floral pattern, while the bodice features ermine trim. Court dress (mantua), London, 1760-65 (with later 19th century alterations). #victoriaandalbertmuseum #victoriaandalbert #vamuseum #18thcentury #18thcenturycostume #18thcenturyfashion #historicalcostume #fashionedfromnature

Had the absolute pleasure to witness the talented @bridgetharvey exhibit at the @vamuseum in the amazing #fashionedfromnature exhibition yesterday. I learn so much from Bridget about the impact our choices have on the planet. Frankly I was ore than a bit star struck that the ‘Mend More Bin Less’ jumper placard was between @katharinehamnett and @viviennewestwood protest pieces. How cool is that?! #protest #mendmorebinless #designermaker #v&a #sustainablefashion

Just doing a bit of planning and thought I’d share this bit of news!! I’m really really excited to be #FashionedfromNature maker in residence at the @vamuseum from October18 to June19. I’m going to be working with their collections and curators and expertise, looking at repair methods and thinking about how we can design repairability in to our future garments. Also hoping to have time to indulge my interest in political textiles, slogan tees, banners, pussy hats etc. So super excited!! Will share open studio dates when they’re finalised, and dm me if you want to come visit (or arrange for your students to!) #repairmakers #repairbeforethebreak #sustainablefashion #mending #visiblemending #visiblemenders 🧡🧡🧡@centreforcirculardesign @fash_rev @becky_earley @politowiczkay @craftscouncil @laura_carderera @ma_designermaker @chelseamatextiledesign

Saw this 1840s print in the V&A’s “Fashioned From Nature” special exhibit, entitled “Graphic Illustrations of Animals, shewing their utility to man, in their employments during life and uses after death.”...emphasis on the “graphic.” Swipe to see close-ups of baby seal clubbing, “taking the walrus,” and the various practical uses (and fine fashions!), that follow.

A slightly larger than usual Mourning bar hand carved in Whitby Jet
Very nice antique, Circa 1880s Victorian, Whitby jet mourning bar pin or brooch. This piece was hand carved and has a design that features an iron cross .its original c clasp pin is in good working order This pin would have been worn by someone in mourning. During the Victorian period, mourning protocol was at its strictest and most complicated due to Queen Victoria remaining in mourning for the rest of her life (until 1901) after the death of her beloved Prince Albert in 1861. This is an easy to wear piece and an essential for those who collect Victorian mourning pieces. Is offered in very good antique condition with wear to the jet commensurate with age and which is visible mainly only with magnification. Origin is the Whitby North Yorkshire, UK and a date estimate is circa 1880-1901
Please see our other listings for more Victorian Whitby jet jewellery

Had to share this beautiful dress.
1860s Muslin dress decorated with over 5,000 iridescent green wings pulled sadly live jewel beetles. This is being shown at the V&A museum in London for their exhibition Fashioned from Nature 21st April - 27 January 2019.

The detail on this dress is breathtaking, but the sad truth is that 5,000 beetle wings and parts of wings were used to decorate it. Visit #FashionedfromNature to learn more: https://goo.gl/znHvbx

Day 6. Fashioned From Nature exhibition at The V&A. So fascinating to see how nature has inspired generations of fashion designers and sobering to learn what damaging effects the dyes and chemicals used in production of our everyday clothes have on the environment. #fashionedfromnature #fashion #design #designinspiration #ecotextiles #circulartextiles

🦅 🐝 RepostBy @vamuseum: "These earrings seem shocking today but from the 1770s to 1914 birds and feathers were used in astonishing quantities for hats, ballgowns or accessories. A ‘fashion moment’ led to the death of millions of birds in mid 19th century when Empress Eugenie wore a bonnet decorated with a hummingbird.

This late-18th century linen waistcoat is delicately embroidered with macaques — the illustrations taken from renowned French naturalist Comte de Buffon’s encyclopedia. Edwina Ehrman, curator of the @vamuseum’s Fashioned from Nature exhibition (where the waistcoat is displayed), notes: “choosing monkeys from Buffon’s publication… to create an embroidery pattern for a waistcoat reflected the fashionable success of Buffon’s encyclopedic masterpiece among Europe’s educated, wealthy classes… in turn, its wearer demonstrated his learning and awareness of the interest in natural history at the highest levels of society.”

Had a fantastic day at the Victoria and Albert Museum, starting with the Frida Kahlo exhibition, then lunch with @yona.lesger, and finally visiting the Fashion from Nature exhibition. I appreciated this exhibition's strong emphasis on the various (natural) materials from which fashion was and is made, and its highlighting of the complex, sometimes controversial relationship between fashion and nature. Here, a nineteenth century dress embellished with over 5000 iridescent beetle wings. Besides being a feast for the eye, Fashioned from Nature also informs about ethical fashion and future fabrics 💙

Launched on the 21st of April 2018, just in time for #FashionRevolutionWeek, Fashioned from Nature is the first UK exhibition to explore the complex relationship between fashion and nature from 1600 to the present day. Tracing 400 years, the exhibition explores the true cost of fashion and showcases pioneer designers and innovators harnessing fashion’s creativity to make a vibrant but more responsible system that respects, protects and celebrates the natural world. Also on display are a Ferragamo piece made from ‘Orange Fiber’ derived from waste from the Italian citrus industry, Calvin Klein's monochrome Met Gala look for Emma Watson, made from recycled plastic bottles; designs made of synthetic spider silk from Bolt Threads x Stella McCartney, and a 1997 Jean Paul Gaultier leopard print gown.
