Hello, my Imperial Unicorns!!! 💜👑💜

Welcome to my fabulous Royal Endeavors episode dedicated to one of the greatest museums I have ever visited – The Victoria and Albert Museum – which happens to be the world largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing an impressive permanent collection of over 2.3 million objects – it is absolutely free, perfectly outstanding and moreover, located in my new favorite city in the world, London – my darling!

The V&A was founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. It is located in the Brompton district of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, in an area that has become known as “Albertopolis” because of its association with Prince Albert, the Albert Memorial and the major cultural institutions with which he was associated. These include the Natural History Museum, which will be the subject of yet another fascinating Royal Endeavors, the Science Museum and the Royal Albert Hall. The museum is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Like other national British museums, entrance to the museum has been free since 2001. 

Its collection spans 5,000 years of art, from ancient times to the present day, from the cultures of Europe, North America, Asia and North Africa. The holdings of ceramics, glass, textiles, costumes, silver, ironwork, jewelry, furniture, medieval objects, sculpture, prints and printmaking, drawings and photographs are among the largest and most comprehensive in the world.

The museum owns the world’s largest collection of post-classical sculpture, with the holdings of Italian Renaissance items being the largest outside Italy. The departments of Asia include Art from South Asia, China, Japan, Korea and the Islamic world. The East Asian collections are among the best in Europe, with particular strengths in ceramics and metalwork, while the Islamic collection is amongst the largest in the Western World. Overall, it is one of the largest museums in the world.

Prince Albert’s wish was to create a museum that would improve British industry by displaying works of art and design to educate and inspire designers, manufacturers and the public. Today, many of the UK’s national collections are housed at the V&A, alongside some of the most outstanding examples of architecture, fashion, painting, textiles and theatre and performance works.

Hello, my sparkling unicorns! 🦄🦄🦄

Rise and Shine as you never did before! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
It’s my Time again and the Holy Jolly season, wheeee !!! 🎀🎀🎀
Time to get all fluffy (I am talking about wool and fur, darlings, step aside from the cookies – I can see you!) and cozy (please let that be on the inside) with yourselves and the winter vibe.
What a wonderful ocassion to step out of the plain, regular and greige (this is how it is called the absolutely flat “color” combination between grey and beige – an indecise and too tempered neutral, b.o.r.i.n.g., that is) comfort zone (I’d say lounge wear but I wear sequins and lace in my Palace lol)!
Let me help you with that! 👑👑👑
