The Alice Look

Start Date 02 May 2015
End Date 01 November 2015
Venue V&A Museum of Childhood
Location London, UK

Get a whole new view of Lewis Carroll’s heroine in this display marking the 150th anniversary of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Follow Alice’s evolution from follower-of-fashion to trend-setter through a selection of garments, photographs, rare editions and a brand new commission by Roksanda pattern-cutter Josie Smith. The display shows how Alice has been adopted and adapted across the world in all walks of life, and how she has inspired many of the most celebrated designers, stylists and photographers.

Illustrator and paper doll designer Charlotte Whatley has created a special edition of her Alice paper doll, featured in the display, for you to download and print. Cut out the clothing to dress the doll, then use the designs as inspiration to create your own clothes for Alice.
