Woman Fashion Power, Design Museum, London UK

The exhibition design is structured around two central hubs or ‘explosions’; the first housing the Timeline component, the second the Arena of Power. This conceptual arrangement expresses the power and energy of fashion as explored by the exhibition. Each fragment of the explosion is employed as a mode of display, highlighting individual pieces whilst also creating a sense of cohesiveness for the many disparate objects exhibited. Suspended mirror panels reflect the displays and further accentuate the sense of fragmented energy and viewing perspectives that are all, ultimately, interconnected. Visitors experience the exhibition akin to how we experience fashion on a daily basis – as an endless series of visual fragments, each one communicating the distinct personality and desires of the individual, yet collectively defining a visual language that embodies the ideas and attitudes of their time.

The exhibition will run until 26 April 2015.
