Charles Jeffrey in his studio at Somerset House by Dan Wilton

The Lore of LOVERBOY

08 Jun - 01 Sep 2024
Terrace Rooms
South Wing

Somerset House presents the first exhibition on international fashion powerhouse Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, which celebrates 10 years of club to catwalk in 2024. 

One of Somerset House Studios’ original residents - whose studio is still based within Somerset House’s community of artists, makers and thinkers - LOVERBOY has been lauded for radically ripping up the fashion rulebook. Loved by the likes of Harry Styles and Tilda Swinton, LOVERBOY transcends disciplinary boundaries across art, design and music.   

From the first rush of inspiration to the skill and craftmanship of the atelier, culminating with the spectacle of a fashion show, the exhibition will offer a behind-the-scenes look into building a fashion business from scratch, focusing on the artistry that lies behind every process. Through a series of sensorially led spaces rendered in LOVERBOY’s signature style, archival artefacts and newly commissioned works will be brought together in a maximalist, immersive show to provide an accessible and engaging insight into creative production and industry.
