The current exhibition at the V&A British Design 1948-2012 showcases 60 years of British design including many exciting patterns and prints like the ones featured here. The V&A exhibition shows that designers have constantly reacted to, and resurrected, older styles to inspire new ones. This continues today as current fashion designers have been looking to the past for ideas.
