The V&A Museum in South Kensington is one of the main wonders of London. One of those places you always nag yourself to visit more and earmark specific exhibitions in your diary because you know they’ll be well worth it when you get there.
Their series with fashion designers called Fashion In Motion is a brilliant example. Over the years they have had one-off fashion shows from the likes of Roksanda Illincic, Yohji Yamamoto, Kenzo and this time around – Peter Jensen. We caught up with the designer himself backstage to find out about his personal highlights from over the years.
Ther Danish designer has been in business for 10 years now and is renowned for his feminine motifs – from womanly Hitchcock heroine types to young slips of things in flimsy little dresses to his trademark sequinned knits and groovy but cute bunny motifs – he had a lot of wicked bits and pieces from within his archive - all the better to mine for his V&A show – a sort of retrospective of his greatest hits.
We had lots of fun there and would encourage anyone to get involved with future Fashion In Motion shows – tickets are on sale to the public and it’s a great chance to see some cool fashion up close and personal – and in the absolutely gorgeous environs of the Raphael Gallery. A lovely evening indeed.
