Finally I got to visit the Burberry & Henry Moore exhibition and I’m so glad I did. It was the last day, typical me, leaving it to the last minute – but I made it! The exhibition was at Makers House in London, right near Tottenham Court Road tube station.
I was on a tight schedule, I had been shooting for the blog and wanted to pop in when I finished. Due to that fact I had an hour left on my parking but I needed to visit the exhibition pronto!
“A celebration of the new February collection alongside the work and creative process of the iconic artist who inspired it.”
They had done it very well, the windows and displays were incredible and it had a buzz about it.
First of all, entry was free and on arrival you are handed a booklet about the exhibition.
The LFW Burberry show is on a big projection wall and people gathered round to watch it in action. After you have watched, you then walk through to wear all the stunning capes are.
These Burberry capes were most noteworthy, they were reimagined and inspired by the scale and form of Henry Moore’s sculpture. They were also absolutely unbelievable. The detail and creation that went into these made them masterpieces. Something that shouldn’t be worn but admired.
Once admiring all the capes and sculptures, you reach Thomas’s (Burberry’s cafe). They had a pop up version at the event and they were serving all the best British bites.
Upstairs was Henry Moore’s work and Burberry’s inspiration room, which gave you a glimpse into the creative techniques used.
Workshops also went on throughout the duration of the exhibition, sadly none were on when I was there but there was so much to take it it didn’t matter. I headed back downstairs and into the poster gallery.
In the poster gallery was Henry Moore’s posters and they also had Burberry posters for guests to take away!
I’m so pleased I managed to make the time to visit and I can’t wait to put the poster in my house!
If you read my previous blog, you will know that when I visited London Fashion Week Festival I broke my “No spend Feb”. I wore these to the exhibition and obviously had to were my bargain cashmere Burberry scarf.
I decided to go for a fairly casual look but teaming it with Manolo Blahnik to give it the added elegance. I quite liked the way the burgundy top and plum shoes clashed.
Seems like clashing is in at the moment, and I am excited to try out some pink and red options in the near future… hmmm, perhaps I could do with a red bag?
Finally, any exhibitions in London like this are my thing and I love attending, so I’d love to hear from you. I would also love to hear your thoughts on the exhibition if you managed to make it there.
