In association with Istituto Marangoni

Fashion shows at 13.30, 15.30, 19.00 & 20.30 in the V&A's Raphael Gallery

Internationally celebrated Italian fashion designer Gianfranco Ferré will show, for the first time in the UK, highlights from his extensive archive and 2005/6 Autumn / Winter collection in a series of catwalk shows at the V&A. Including Ferré's trademark reinvention of the white shirt, the outfits selected for these shows will all reflect the designer's passion for travel and will feature clothes inspired by cultures from all over the world.

Ferré's fashion credentials have been well established since he designed his first collection in 1974. In 1978 the Gianfranco Ferré company was founded and in 1989 Ferré was appointed artistic director of Christian Dior, where he designed Haute Couture and women's prêt -à-porter collections until 1996 when he returned to working exclusively for his own company. Ferré has received the 'L'Occhio d'Oro' - the Italian fashion Oscar several times and continues to work tirelessly to produce eighteen collections for the nine Ferré clothing lines, and twelve accessories lines every year.

Gianfranco Ferré's enduring, elegant and structured designs have influenced young designers all over the world. He also has a reputation as an innovator in the manipulation of materials, including new techniques such as laser cutting cloth to create perforated patterns in his latest collection.
