The V&A has announced its British Design 1948-2012: Innovation in the Modern Age exhibition, which is being curated for a March 2012 opening, a period which today’s designers have been influenced by and one which they have been part of shaping. 

Taking in a period which spans the 1948 austerity Olympics to next year’s 2012 London Olympic games, British graphic design,  furniture, architecture, industrial products, fine art, ceramics  and fashion stand to be included.

The museum will display 350 works – 250 from its own collection and a further 100 borrowed items – telling the story through three thematic galleries. 

Exhibition curator Ghislaine Wood has worked with co-curator Christopher Breward to bring the exhibition together over two-and-a-half years.
