As one of the major fashion capitals of the world, all scattered throughout London are an endless number of art and fashion installations. As a fashion enthusiast myself, I spent this month attending two of the most popular fashion exhibitions going on in the city. With free admission, the exhibitions allow the public to see a different side of the fashion industry that extends far beyond models walking the catwalk.
Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition
Runtime: 21/09 – 18/10
Located in central London, this exhibition gave the public the chance to see and understand the vision and work that went into the French fashion house’s Autumn-Winter 2015 collection. Spanning over three floors and thirteen rooms, the exhibition encompassed the past, present and future of Louis Vuitton right in front of the public’s eyes.
Runtime: 13/10 – 1/11
Installed on three floors in the Saatchi Gallery, this exhibition highlights many aspects of Chanel including haute couture, Chanel No.5 and the recent re-editions of the 1932 jewel collection “Bijoux de Diamants”. Looking through history, Mademoiselle Prive balances the original inspirations and designs from Coco Chanel herself and the vision and innovations Karl Lagerfeld has brought to the fashion house since 1983.
If you are looking to indulge in a little high art and fashion without breaking the bank, London is the place to be. Fashion exhibitions like Louis Vuitton Series 3 and Mademoiselle Prive are always running around the city and are the perfect budget friendly activities for all fashion lovers out there!
