Lots of lovely new stuff at the V&A since I visited in September and it'll be a long time before I get there again. Thanks for posting ... almost as good as visiting.

My favourite is the beaded Patou - it came to Melbourne last year and it was wonderful being able to look at the trompe l'oeil beading up close.
