To coincide with London Fashion Week, It will feature three decades of “trailblazing” designs focusing on the capital’s “unique fashion culture on the world stage”.

Highlights include Marjan Pejoski’s Swan Dress worn by Björk at the 2001 Oscars, Harry Styles’ Steven Stokey Daley outfit from his video for Golden and a replica of Sam Smith’s inflatable latex suit by Harri from this year’s Brit Awards.

Visitors will also see the neon collection from Christopher KaneSageKate MossVogue, and a Molly Goddard blue ruffle dress that went viral on InstagramRihanna

These items will be shown alongside films, drawings, memorabilia and never-before-seen archive material from some of the most well-known contemporary UK-based designers.

Focusing on the “fearless young designers, who have transformed the fashion landscape through their talent and brilliance,” The Design Museum has worked directly with these designers to select important and ground-breaking pieces from their personal archives. Many of the items going on show have not been seen in public since their debut.

All the designers featured in the show were supported in the early stages of their careers through NewGen. 

Guest-curated by BFC Ambassador for Emerging Talent Sarah Mower, and co-curated by the Design Museum Senior Curator Rebecca Lewin, Mower said: “It is impossible to underestimate the influence London has on Britain’s fashion talent a city that produces wave-after-wave of young designers that value originality, wearing what you believe in, and tackling social issues to make a better world.

“This landmark exhibition will take visitors on a remarkable journey through London’s creative landscape, and to all the locations where all this fashion magic happens. The city’s art schools, clubs and catwalks will be brought to life like never before.”
