If you love fashion and you enjoy sports. Mix both things in a cocktail shaker and ‘Waa Laa’, you have an exhibition at Londons V&A museum.

Sportswear has become an essential part of the world for many years now. In this modern day an age,  sportswear has become a fashion icon to many famous people such as Missy Elliot (Adidas Respect me collection) to basketballer legend Micheal Jordons collection by nike.

Sportswear is not just clothes you need to essentially wear just to run round the block with your pet dog. It’s now a major lifestyle to people of all ages. Also the more vintage the sportswear collection is, the more personal the brand is to the person collecting  the garment or sneaker.

So head down to the V&A to have a vgood understanding of today’s visions of sportswear in todays fashion scene.
