There’s no doubt we have all experienced a right Royal season with Jubilee celebrations up and down the country. For the UK in particular, the Jubilee has presented the chance to embrace all things British and for one of the Queen’s visits that crossed over into great British Fashion design as well.
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee reached South Bromley, Fashion Capital Ltd created three displays; Fashion Through the Ages, the last 60 Years courtesy of Mark and Cleo Butterfield from C20 Vintage Fashion. They kindly supplied stunning garments by Hardy Aimes, Ossie Clark, Biba and Anthony Price amongst others. Also on show Design Pods featured a range of fashion disciplines from education through to production and up and running design businesses.
While choice pieces featured in the Heritage Display from inspiring London Fashion Week designers such as John Rocha, PPQ, GOAT London, Bora Aksu, Jean-Pierre Braganza, the list goes on. The exhibition entitled “London as a Global Centre of Fashion” celebrated the wealth of fashion talent the capital has to offer, not only in the design sector but also in education, textiles, and production.
FashionCapital Director, Jenny Holloway, escorted the Queen around the various fashion displays, meeting designers and the team. For many of the designers the exhibition provided that once in a lifetime chance to meet and display their work to Her Majesty.
