From September 2015, the British Fashion Council will be moving London Fashion Week to a new venue in Soho’s Brewer Street. We are very proud to have been a partner and a focal point for this prestigious event since 2009 – a global highlight on the international fashion calendar – during a period in which London Fashion Week and Somerset House have evolved considerably. We wish the British Fashion Council huge success in the future, though their offices will remain at Somerset House. Their departure presents us with new opportunities for large-scale public events, both in our iconic courtyard and within the building.
We have programmed several fashion exhibitions in recent years including SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution, which was a collaboration with renowned fashion photographer Nick Knight, Dior Illustrated: René Gruau and the Line of Beauty, a fashion illustration exhibition, Valentino: Master of Couture, Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! and 20 Years of Dazed & Confused.
