Undressed: A History of Fashion in Underwear

This blockbuster exhibition presented the fascinating history of underwear design from the 18th century to the present. Featuring more than 200 objects, Undressed told the story of the ongoing evolution of underwear (men’s and women’s) from its origins as a basic layer between the skin and clothes to its use in fashion and as fashion. The exhibition included key designers and manufacturers from all periods. Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
The fascinating and sometimes controversial story of underwear design from the 18th century to the present day is told in this blockbuster exhibition organized by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. Taking a serious look at an alluring subject, Undressed illustrates how undergarments reflect society’s changing ideas about the body, morality, and sex, and examines the intimate relationship between underwear and fashion and its role in molding the body to an always changing fashionable ideal. Organized into thematic sections that explore such ideas as relaxation, revelation, temptation, transformation, and performance, Undressed looks at how our undergarments shape our bodies, and reveal things about ourselves.
