Commencing on the 8th of September 2017, orchestrated by Lou Stoppard, the ‘Fashion Together’ exhibition explores some of fashion’s most glorious partnerships, and gives individuals a peek into innovative alliances in the industry, allowing fashion lovers and creatives an insight into what makes these partnerships so idiosyncratic.
Located at the London College of Fashion, The Fashion Space gallery is an ultramodern space, home to the many fashion-related arts, where several eccentric exhibitions are held by leading designers and photographers.
The industry of fashion is home to unconventional and quirky personalities, tied in with unprecedented talents, but to be honest, it’s really those who unite and synthesise their talents that have the industry moving forward and developing. This progressive happening is what inspired and energized this exhibition.
Exhibitors include notable names such as: Alexander McQueen and Shaun Leane, Thom Browne and Stephen Jones, Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, and more. Ranging from designers, photographers, milliners and film makers, the displayed exhibitors advance from diverse duties within the fashion industry.
“I’m interested in lasting partnerships – the formative, friendships, the unions that exist behind the scenes or the decades-long working relationships that have shaped each participant’s vision and life. These relationships are common across the industry, but their complexity has been under-analysed”, says Stoppard.
The exhibition concurs alongside the release of his book, Fashion Together: Fashion’s Most Extraordinary Duos on the Art of Collaboration – available from 17th October.
