40 YEARS OF FASHION INNOVATION. THE BROWNS EXHIBITION IS NOW OPEN!!


Browns: 40 Years of Fashion Innovation - 13th May - 30th May

ENTRANCE IS FREE

As part of our ongoing anniversary celebrations, today sees the unveiling of our unique exhibition BROWNS: 40 YEARS OF FASHION INNOVATION. The exhibition takes a nostalgic walk down memory lane - through the eyes of Browns. So expect to see iconic pictures and original vintage archive pieces from designers such as Ralph Lauren, Missoni and Comme des Garcon - all of whom Joan Burstein was responsible for importing to Europe in the 70’s and 80’s – as well as later discoveries such as John Galliano, the late Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan. Revered photographer Paolo Roversi has shot 40 specially commissioned photographs of ‘Browns Ambassadors’ dressed in specially selected looks. These include Marc Jacobs, Claudia Schiffer, Liberty Ross and Natalia Vodianova (dressed in a piece from Chalayan’s ‘Buried’ collection). These portraits will run alongside film footage of definitive catwalk shows spanning many seasons.

The curation of this exciting exhibition and set has been conceived by Simon Costin, the acclaimed set designer famed for Alexander McQueen’s notoriously theatrical fashion shows.
