Chanel 'The Little Black Jacket' at Saatchi Gallery, London

Large format fashion photography currently dominates the gallery space at Saatchi. http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/current/the_little_black_jacket.php Chanel has dedicated the show to Karl Lagerfeld’s new book ‘The Little Black Jacket’ and this exhibition has captured some of the world’s most beautiful actors, models and artists in one gallery space. The black and white photographic images are styled immaculately and dressed appropriately for the collective theme. Highlights include the Yoko Ono photo shoot and glass colour printed triptyches. Free entry and free black and white print; what a brilliant fashion fix – perfect, along with a shopping trip on the Kings road! http://www.karl.com/ See it before 4th November 2012.

London College of Fashion VM Students and Anthropologie Collaboration

In collaboration with the Anthropologie display artists the two very talented students produced a woven inspired piece which complements the already eclectic and creative interior design of the store. http://www.fashion.arts.ac.uk/courses/foundation-degrees/fda-fashion-retail-branding-visual-merchandising/

Kensington Palace Exhibitions, London

There are so many reasons to visit Kensington Palace at the moment...what a delightfully refreshing visual experience currently on display! Installations designed in collaboration with theatre set and experience company Coney, http://www.youhavefoundconey.net/home/ who have created such an intriguing, charming and playful representation of the monarchy within these beautiful gallery spaces open to the public. Each display has captured the fabulous art of storytelling, quite like a sequence of theatrical store windows. Display techniques range from projector light shows, whispering walls, interactive engaging digital displays, concealed messages hidden within quirky furniture props; thoroughly entertaining and thought provoking; it’s definitely worth a second visit! Check out the ‘House of Cards at the Queens State Apartments and customised wallpaper with Princess Diana illustrations..!

Strike a Pose!

With traces of London Fashion Week this Autumn/Winter 12 still shimmering on our London streets, the ‘photography’ trend is thriving from Burberry to Berska. The ‘Pap’s are at it again! Giant film rolls, camera lenses, tripods; playful oversized scale/proportion is a popular approach to this window display theme...
