It’s not often you get something for free, so when something does come without a price tag it’s only right for you to take full advantage. Fashion Gallery Space, nestled just off Oxford Circus, provides you fashion to feast your eyes on and no entry fee.
The contemporary exhibition space is located at the London College of Fashion site on John Princes Street. As you would expect from a space with such high fashion credentials, it’s only fitting that the exhibitions celebrate all things stylish. Fashion Gallery Space provides emerging talent with an inspiring and thought-provoking space to discover and learn from their contemporaries.
Now we know cynical Londoners will be thinking that nothing good comes for free but with a commitment from the London College of Fashion to regenerate the space and with a little help from their “friends”, Fashion Space Gallery can ensure that they continue to match the high standards of exhibitions throughout London. Their prominent place in the West End means that there’s no excuse not to drop by and judge for yourself.
Previous exhibitions subjects have been wide ranging, exploring anything within the fashion framework, from ‘Carmen, A Life in Fashion’, to ‘David McDiarmid, A Short History of Facial Hair’. If like us you can’t resist a bit of fashion forward headwear then their upcoming exhibition is a must see. ‘Heads On’ starts on 6th February celebrating the Milliner’s role in fashion and features pieces made by designer John Rocha. A programme of events, commissioned by Curators Leanne Wierzba and Gemma Williams, complement and add whole new dimensions to the exhibitions.
The current exhibition, ‘Leather: Second Skin’, finishes on 22nd January so don’t miss out on your chance to learn more about leather’s long and stylish history.
