What is Luxury?

A Crafts Council and V&A exhibition 

The Crafts Council and V&A announce their next partnership exhibition - What is Luxury?

The exhibition will present exceptional examples of contemporary design and craftsmanship alongside conceptual projects which explore fundamental ideas of luxury, its production and future.

Over 100 exceptional, crafted objects from 1670 to the present day will be on display including a couture gown by fashion designer Iris van Herpen and fine examples of haute horlogerie by British watchmaker George Daniels, alongside more unexpected projects which explore the cultural value of materials such as gold, diamonds and plastic.

What is Luxury? is at the V&A from 25 April to 27 September 2015
